We had the pleasure of exhibiting again in the American Craft Exposition September 19-22 at the beautiful Chicago Botanic Garden. We brought our binoculars and found time to do some birding while there. Always an inspiration! Check out the photos of my booth.
One of my favorite styles of fish to make. Seabass, Barracuda, and Wahoo. Each has a pine body clad with antique tin pieces shaped and nailed on, with a bottle cap eye. Each piece in this style is absolutely one of a kind. Seabass are 33” long, 12” at widest point. Barracuda 52” long, 11” wide at the tail, and the Wahoo is 38” long, 11” wide at the tail. Contact me if you are interested in a piece in this style.
Textured and painted gesso on poplar, or charred, bushed and waxed cedar, glass bead eyes. Mounts include cigar boxes, antique baking soda, candy, baking soda tins and more. 8″- 14″ long.
