plywood, primer, bottle caps, vintage car steel, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
The city of Lincoln City, OR commissioned this Fish and a 41 inch Waves O’ Fire Sculptural Firebowl as public art. I was a Featured Artist at the Art Sea Festival and gave a live demonstration of creating a Bottle Cap Mosaic.
This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from Coke and Topo Chico 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. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails.
