The Fishing Line - hanging mobile


This month's new addition to the Flying Star Toys collections is a hanging mobile called The Fishing Line.


Clear water and sapphire skies, silvery light on a midday sand, little fishes slip through, in the stream of life. These are the images of inspiration that linger in The Fishing Line hanging mobile.

Fish have long been significant symbols of life and and the soul in nature and man. The soul swims unseen through the sea of our life, sometimes we need quite moments to catch sight of it. You can read more about the The Fishing Line on The Fishing Line Story page.

The Fishing Line is a significant piece of subtle detail. The current limited edition Bramble Bay is named after the tranquil cove of Moreton Bay near my home. You can see more images on The Fishing Line Gallery page.

The Fishing Line is now available in the Flying Star Toys on Etsy shop.

I really appreciate all of you stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments. I've been really surprised by the response to "The Fishing Line". I thought it was just going to be another one of those odd things that I do :)

I've had it waiting to be launched since August last year. It was only that my mum and sister happened to make such a fuss over it this Easter that made me decide to launch it this month.

I'm very pleased that something so different has been received so well. Thank you all again.
