Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish No. 52, 2011
plywood, primer, bottle caps, recycled car body, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
This fish is made from Blue Moon, Maine Root and Michelob Ultra bottle caps. The fins and tale are cut from vintage car metal from the 60’s or 70’s. The eye is a jar lid with a bottle cap pupil. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails.
The Blue Moon caps, with their concentric circles of alternating light and dark colors make an exceptionally cool pattern when used together.
