About the Art:
This pair of fish swims gently in your garden or on a dock with the wind, just like the ocean current! Fred hand hammers and welds the heavy gauge raw steel 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 springy fish are 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. The fish will arrive to you with their coils "un-sprung." To spring the fish, simply stand on the edges of the piece, grasp the fish, and pull up to desired height.
- The pair of fish is approximately 7 inches tall (unsprung, measured at tallest point)
- Approximately 19 inches wide
- The base has a diameter of about 16 inches
- The piece weighs about 3 pounds.
