I LOVE FISH, THE SEA, WOOD AND DESIGN

I first visited the island of Vis in the middle of Dalmatia 19 years ago. That’s where my story with fish began. Every year we go there for a Robinson Crusoe holiday where we don’t have electricity. There is the time to create.On Vis, there is a lighthouse keeper in the Stončica bay, who carves fish from wood, which are proudly worn by all highlanders. My silent wish was to buy myself this wonderful fish that will accompany me all year round, even when I’m not at sea. My wish didn’t come true. As I was sad, I sat down on a lonely beach, picked up a sharp Swiss Army knife and the first fish emerged from under my hands. I was amazed at myself: I KNOW IT. I made a fish necklace myself out of alluvial wood.
