Intro
Fish have had a role in culture through the ages, serving as religious symbols and as the subjects of art, books and movies. For me the capturing of the poetic element of the Fish and especially its beautiful shapes lead to new designs.

Fish have had a role in culture through the ages, serving as religious symbols and as the subjects of art, books and movies.
For me the capturing of the poetic element of the Fish and especially its beautiful shapes lead to new designs.
Is it possible to capture the movement and the colors of the Fish? To research this I bought and analyzed some Fish from the market.
The most beautiful parts, fins, tail and head, are transformed into porcelain amulets from the sea. 

Nina Sajet

This Nina Sajet work was exhibited at the Exhibition "Fish - from Shark to Koi" in the SieboldHuis Museum, Netherlands. The exhibition showed various kinds of Fish, which were gathered by Siebold in 1823 -1834 in Japan. Those drawings are painted by Keiga Kawahara (1786-1860). He lived in Nagasaki, Japan in the Edo period. He painted a lot of animals, plants and genre figures, which were ordered by Siebold. It is said that there are about 6000 to 7000 pieces. His precise drawings are still used as samples by biologists.
Nina Sajet made jewelry with the title "Lost in the sea" inspired by Keiga Kawahara 's drawings.
