Fun Fishy Fact:
In its life cycle, an adult flounder has two eyes situated on one side of its head, while at hatching one eye is located on each side of its brain. One eye migrates to the other side of the body as a process of metamorphosis as it grows from larval to juvenile stage.
About the Art:
Working with mostly 14-16 gauge raw steel, Fred cuts, hand hammers and welds the metal to create sea life, bringing an aquatic feel to homes, offices, and gardens. He often begins the rust process to give a more weathered appearance and to enhance the contours and shapes of a piece. No two pieces are ever the same, (so yours is one of a kind!), and variations in color and texture add to the overall character of his work. The flounder is suitable for use both inside and outdoors. If displayed outdoors, the fish will continue to rust beautifully in the elements; but If you wish to reduce further rusting, we suggest applying a clear mat lacquer which will need to be reapplied over time. We all know fish can swim any direction, and if you have a preference whether he will be swimming left to right, or right to left, please email or call us!
The mini flounder is 5.5 inches long, 3.5 inches tall (at its tallest point). It weighs approximately .5 pounds.
