Dorothy Filshie “Fish Out of Water”

“Fish Out of Water” by Dorothy Filshie
“Dorothy uses hessian, calico, duck and artists’ canvas plastered with old-fashioned gesso made from rabbit skin glue and whiting powder to create her sculptural fish. Her work is dictated by a love of food, textiles and art. Each work is hollow and is made from a pattern by cutting shapes from suitable fabrics, stitching the pieces by hand or machine, then shaping and stiffening them into three dimensional forms.”
