Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish No. 35, 2006
plywood, primer, bottle caps, vintage car steel, antique rake, brass nails
20″ x 55.5″ x 1.5″
This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from Labatts and Molson bottle caps. I wish I had a better photo of the way the light reacted with this one— the little bit of red in the metallic blue caps caused the whole fish to glow a bright neon purple in the right lighting. The fins are cut from vintage car metal from the 60’s or 70’s. The tail is an antique rake. The eye is a bottle cap. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails.
