2 Colourful Funky Fish mounted on Upcycled Pallet Wood
Colourful and fun Funky Fish 04 sculpture on Upcycled Wood.
Each fish has been individually shaped and textured. The bright colours have been achieved with alcohol ink. I have given a renaissance wax polish to the inked fish which will help to maintain the shine.
The making process makes each copper fish unique. I draw a fish shape free hand, cut it using metal snips and then hammer it. The fins and tail on these fish are attached using copper-sulphur brazing rod. The alcohol ink is then poured on the surface and allowed to flow in every direction without much intervention. As a result of this the colourful patterns on each fish will always be different.
The wood for the mount comes from a pallet. Mr A cut it to size, sanded it down and painted it in this lovely charcoal coloured paint. I think it really shows off the bright colours beautifully.
Size: The upcycled wood pallet block on which the FUNKY FISH 04 are mounted is 21 cm x 9 cm. The fish are approx 9 cm long (each). There is a string at the back to hang it on a nail / hook.
Nice gift for your fisherman friends perhaps? I can make these colourful Funky Fish on Upcycled Wood to order for Christmas and other special occasions, for party favours and for business gifting.
