Misty Isle Fish Slice | Will Maclean

ATLAS Arts commissioned Will Maclean to create a limited edition artwork inspired by his personal connection to the Isle of Skye. Maclean’s school holidays were spent with his grandparents in Kyelakin after his parents moved to Inverness when he was three. This silver fish slice evokes his memories of the Misty Isle herring boat which was part of this once thriving industry.

Will Maclean worked with silversmith John Flegg to bring his design to life. It features the design of a herring, with the Misty Isle’s boat registration number – BRD 354. It displays the five hallmarks: Date Mark (S), Makers Mark (EAO), the Fineness Mark (925), the Edinburgh Assay Office Mark, and the Lion Rampant marking the piece as being Sterling Silver hallmarked in Scotland. Will Maclean’s signature can also be seen on the handle.

The fish slice is an edition of five and each is made to order. If you would like any further information or to place an order please visit our online shop.
