Koi are a legendary fish. Graceful, vibrant, and one of the most recognisable fish in the world, often associated with Japan, koi actually originated from Central Asia in China. Over the years, koi carp have become iconic around the world.
In Japanese the word “koi” means “affection” or “love”, so Koi fish are symbols of love and friendship. Our inspiration to create this Koi fish bowl was to create a centre piece which is not only beautiful but also totally practical. Usually our influences are from the ocean but in this case we are trying to recreate the elegance and colours of these fabulous cold water fish.

Bowl and Base together:
Objet Luxe Glass vases and pendant lights are handmade and blown in the traditional way. It will last for many years and retain its original beauty with the minimum amount of need to clean. We recommend occasional wiping of the surface with a damp (not soaked) soft clean cloth or cotton wool and then blot dry using soft paper towelling and leave to thoroughly air dry. Only clean one item at a time, remove jewellery and rings that could scratch the glass during the cleaning process and never use detergents. If your glass has any metal mounts, avoid getting water in crevices where it may cause corrosion. Silver mounts may have been lacquered to prevent tarnishing, so avoid using solvents when cleaning.
We silver plate onto solid brass and then lacquer to give a long lasting durable finish that protects against tarnishing and prevents over-polishing, this in turn maintains the original beauty of each item. You only need to lightly dust with a soft cloth and the item will remain an object of beauty.
All Objet Luxe shells and items made of shell mosaic are given a final production coat of lacquer which will protect it for a very long time. We recommend a gently dusting to care for all shell products. Be careful not to scratch the shell surface and do not use chemicals or abrasive cleaning agents. You only need to lightly dust with a soft cloth.
