Fish Project 2013
Early in 2013 I began knitting fish again to hang in the same tree at Brockton Point. I have become very fond of that tree, its shape and position looking out onto the ocean where the wild salmon hopefully are managing to survive. I was determined to have the fish up in the tree before the blossom bloomed. As spring got close my dear friend, Marianne Phillips, said she would make some felted fish to hang with the knitted ones.
We arrived together before the blossom was out to hang the fish. The knitted and the felted fish complimented each other nicely and once again they remained in the tree for about a month. Here are photographs of the fish in the making and then of the day the fish were suspended from the tree. More photographs were taken on various days when I visited the fish during the few weeks they remained on display. This includes the last day when the fish were gone but a few felted fish had sadly been left on the ground. I surrounded them with blossoms that had fallen off the tree and took the final picture.
Alex Morton is working very hard to save the wild salmon in our waters, but will this newly elected Liberal government be in favour of the wild over fish farmed in pens off our coast?
