'Polar Trout', Autumn of 14 Collection by Martin Cooney

I first began to harness a notion to carve a leaping trout immediately upon my return from the three day hut trip I took with my son Joseph towards the end of one particularly fine September.   It was while we were first getting our bearings in the dense woodland around Uncle Bud’s cabin, on the first day of our two day hikes,  that we encountered the most startling,  and enchanted little secluded lake.  And all of a sudden: there we were, bathed in silence,  not a breath of wind,  not a sound,  nothing.  The peace and tranquility of the moment was astonishing. Until, that is, the stunning silence was torn asunder by a most spectacular leaping trout. SPLASH!

I really enjoyed carving Polar Trout, and during the carving process I thought it important to project as much life and vitality into this carving, as befits such a fleeting glimpse as that of a fish out of water.  Polar Trout’s brilliant white marble is protected by a hardy and uniform matte appearance, with a surface that has been rendered with a  careful top brushing in order to create a luster, as opposed to a lustered shine.  And so, may I present Polar Trout leapping to pluck a juicy insect right out of the air. And it is this essential lust for life that  Polar Trout  is all about !
