Zig Zag Fish & Curvy Fish

$475 each--call for shipping estimate

Product Description

Zig Zag and Curvy refer to the pattern made by pewter inlaid in the fish body.  I cut out a pattern in the wood--garapa or Brazilian Ash (scrap from a neighbor's deck)--and pour in molten pewter which I have melted in a frying pan in my woodstove.  The tails and ventral fins of both fish come from the latch assembly of an old chest freezer from Les Chalets (The French Camp).  When the camp closed in the 1980's we acquired the freezer and used it to store fruit for another 20 years until it finally gave up.  The dorsal fins are pewter "spills."  The eye of the latter is the ringer from an old rotary telephone. (I was once told that such ringers were tuned 1/2 octiave apart to make a pleasing sound.)  The whimsical eye piece of Curvy Fish was salvaged from a large piece of equipment that I dismantled to yield more interesting what-nots.  Both approx 19" long by 8" from fin tip to fin tip.
