SHOAL No. 8 - Fisketorvet Mall, Copenhagen

This spectacular Shoal sculpture, a huge body of 8,500 stainless steel fish, was commissioned for Copenhagen's former fish market now transformed into a shopping mall.
Schooling in a ceaseless, highly disciplined synchronised stream, the Shoal radiates extraordinary energy. From some angles, its 12m wide shape resembles the infinity symbol  which has given this amazing creation its name and signifies the Mall's own historic and future transitions.

SCROLL SHOALS - Verbier, Switzerland

This Shoal, suspended above a four metre long dining table beneath a skylight, was installed in one of the more exclusive chalets in the premiere ski resort of Verbier. Echoing the panoramic view of the mountain range, the lower fish in this Shoal sculpture rise and fall with the summits, slopes and valleys. Three scroll Shoals and two cylindrical Shoals make up the formation, which features 1400 natural unglazed fish and measures one metre at its deepest.

SHOAL743 - Fishmongers' Hall, London UK

Sited in the entrance foyer of the Fishmongers' Hall on the North East side of London Bridge, the regal, precious Shoal743 features 743 fine bone china fish coated in 24ct gold.

The number 743 is significant as it represents one fish for every year since the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers was granted its first Royal Charter in 1272. Created in 2015, this Shoal gives a literal reference to the Guild’s origin: a monument to the humble and unassuming fish.
