Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish No. 30, 2006
plywood, primer, bottle caps, vintage car steel, brass gear, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from Coke and Beck’s bottle caps. I love the way that the coloration of the caps mirror each other— Coke is red with a little white and Becks is white with a little red. It makes the whole piece tie together well. The fins and tale are cut from vintage car metal from the 60’s or 70’s. The eye is a an ornate brass gear and a bottle cap. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails.
