Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish No. 36, 2006
plywood, primer, bottle caps, recycled copper roofing, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from Amstel Light, Peroni and Bass Ale bottle caps. I love the way that the coloration of the caps mirror each other— Some are red with a little gold, the others gold with a little red. It makes the whole piece tie together well. The fins and tale are cut from recycled roofing copper. The eye is a jar lid. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails.
