Commission loosely based on Fish numbers 4 and 5. This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from Heineken and Oberon bottle caps. The fins are cut from a steel dust pan with corrugated sides. The tail is an antique rake. The fin by the gills is a gorgeous old spatula blade that I saved for years. 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.
