I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing sculptor and fabricator Kari Furre for the FT Weekend a few months ago. Kari, based in Devon, South West England works with the traditionally Nordic material of fish skin to create beautiful and unusual sculptures.
Kari also uses plaice, salmon and cod for bookbinding, hats and waistcoats, masks and baskets. Her raw materials are sourced from the fishing port of Brixham in Devon. She relies on the chefs in local restaurants who take fresh catches and save their carefully trimmed skins especially for her. Take a look at Kari's website here.
