An exquisite work of art depicting an aesthetic layout of the various natural elements from the artist's surroundings--fish and lotus in a pond, the shrubbery and flowers growing all around, and the sun.

Koi Noir: a meditative slice of pond in slip-matched, rift-cut bog oak, its marquetry a restricted palette of black and white natural and dyed woods. 20 coats of hand-rubbed high gloss lacquer lend a reflective watery quality to the surface.

OLUNDA Picture, ill-advised bid for freedom

OLUNDA Picture IKEA Motif created by Jane Ormes. The fish are mounted at a distance from the background, which gives the picture added depth.

A dark wenge console behind a charcoal-covered sofa is the perfect palce to introduce spot colour - as with these three goldfish bowls of arum lilies with twisted stems. A tribal headrest at the far end - being of a similar height - balances the glass and flowers.
