Tropical Fish Upcycled Metal Sculpture-small scale
I've been in a tropical mood lately. This sculpture is a new version of an old favorite. I wanted to make the kelp more graceful which is difficult with hard, static silverware. Enter one of my favorite tools...fire! I heat, bend, and manipulate knives to create flowing kelp which is then welded to the base. The fish, made of mini CO2 tanks and parts of a vegetable steamer floats easily among the kelp and stands off of it about 1/2" to complete the illusion. Anemonies tinged with gold complete the scene. This sculpture features modern colors: pale blue and coral, with leafy green kelp, grey base and a matt finish. It is sure to add some zen and tranquility to your home or office.
