Originally we planned to give each fish a user-login, to log in wehn you found it. But then we thought there would be just 10 fishes. Now we have over 30 and there would be too many users.so we changed it a bit. Please use the Email form on the Bottle-message siten. The code you find in the bottle you cann fill in the Mail form. We are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as you have found a fish.

The Exhibition in Coldam was opened at the weekend (10.9.2017). Gemma and Vincent have done a great work and presented several artworks from artists from Germany, Netherlands an Denmark. We all were especially happy about the weather, as the sun came out again after a totally wet saturday.

The local newspaper OZ will bring out an article this week.


How to create a journeyfish

There are many ways to create a journeyfish. You can saw it out of wood, sew it out of some material, or screw it together out of metal...  There are no limits to creativity.
I always make them out of driftwood I find at the river or the sea. Perhaps because there already is the connection to the water.
You can download a PDF and have a look how I do it.
