herring collection

printed from a real whole smoked herring using a traditional Japanese art form called gyotaku, or fish rubbing.  the fish is brushed with ink then a cloth placed over it and pressed to form a direct print.  this print is photographed and forms the basis of our herring designs.

hot smoked herring are a traditional food from our island, Bornholm. the distinctive chimneys of the smokehouses punctuate the landscape.  the herring, hung on a rod through the eye are hot smoked over alder wood and turn 'from silver to gold' in the smoking process. all of the lovely wrinkles in the skin come from the smoking process and make for a iconic image.
