My brother and I don't have a whole lot in common. Though it seems we're both avid 'repurposers', if you will. This fish was made for a specific angled wall at my parent's cottage, seen here after unwrapping X-mas morning.
It was quickly mounted my dad's garage for temporary display, though you can see the angle it's intended for more clearly here. The teeth were culled from a chainsaw, the head from two shovels. There's a discoloration along the wrenches that makes for a striking pattern along the fish, to my eye.
My brother has been at this sort of work for years, most of the items I've seen have been gifts or fixtures for his home. I think it was when he described buying cheap wrench sets to warp into this fish that I was reminded of the phase of my work where I was haunting clearance racks and loose figures at the comic shop for raw materials.
I hope to get more of his work photographed in the near future. He really doesn't have a web presence for his pieces, but I find his sense of design rather striking and wanted to share the one-of-a-kind x-mas gift he made this year with .
