Before taking a degree in Art, Ashley worked for ten years as a skilled prototype engineer and uses many of those skills such as welding and fabricating to create his sculptures.

Sculpture description:
I created this fish sculpture after I was commissioned to create a sculpture to celebrate a 6th wedding anniversary. The wife wanted to gift the sculpture to her husband who has his own stocked lake where he frequently fishes. And although he fishes for a range of species one of his favorites is the carp (Cyprinus carpio carpio). I made a number of sketches and decided to go with the stunning mirror carp variant that was originally bred by monks, centuries ago, to have less scales for the diner plate. Some of the mirror carp have a row of large scales running along the lateral line which I decided to use six scales either side to depict celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary. After settling on final sketch, having received final approval from the client, I scaled up the drawing with chalk directly onto my workshop floor and set about creating the fish sculpture. I am pleased to say both the husband and wife are very happy with the final sculpture. Below are pictures of the final work and work in progress.

Customer comment on 'Solitaire I (Bronze nude Naked Sitting Girl statue)' by J Anne Butler
Dear Anne, Ray and Peter,
