Bottle Cap Mosaic Fish No. 24, 2006
plywood, primer, bottle caps, recycled copper roofing, copper nails
20″ x 50″ x 1.5″
This bottle cap mosaic fish is made from all different kinds of bottle caps— every brand that was mostly white or mostly black but uncommon enough that I only had a few. So both sections have kind of a salt and pepper look which actually worked out quite a bit better than I expected. The fins and tale are cut from recycled roofing copper. The eye is a jar lid. All the caps are partially crimped but not flattened and then nailed to double-primed plywood with copper nails.
