Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish No. 32, 2006
plywood, primer, bottle caps, bronze sheet, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from Heineken, Pacifico and one Topo Chico bottle caps. The fins and tale are cut from bronze sheet recycled from a door kickplate. The eye is a jar lid and a bottle cap. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails. This is one of the very few fish which don’t have a different color for the face.
