The style found in Natasha Jabre’s paintings and drawings are revitalized in her ceramic koi fish pieces. The colors in this new artistic medium are bold, dramatic and attract visual attention from the viewer. The combination of vibrant colors and the shape of the koi fish were inspired in 2007 when Jabre visited the Botanical Garden in Montreal. Jabre was most attracted to the Japanese symbolism of koi fish which are family oriented and represent love. The ceramic fish are made in a larger and smaller size to allow the collector to construct a family.
