This fish measures 2" tall and 1-3/4" wide, and can be viewed equally well from all sides.

Hand carved from balsa wood, the entire body has been painted dark orange and decorated with bright yellow dots. The fins and tail were cut from heavyweight art paper. Multiple layers of paint have been used to create the markings, so the fish feels quite interesting when held in one's hands. (I like it very much when people are compelled to touch my work as well as look at it.)

A matte setting agent has been applied to the body, fins and tail, to ensure that repeated handling will not damage the painted surfaces. The pale blue eyes look like tiny glass ones, but were actually created by building up layers of metallic paint and varnish. The stand was made by my sister from bass wood. (She builds dollhouse furniture and always has lots of scraps left over.) It has been stained with washes of dark brown acrylic paint. My signature label is affixed to the underside.

Loosely based on antique fish decoys, my miniature version is pure fantasy. Friends and customers who already own some of my fish sculptures have told me that they like to display them on windowsills, curio shelves, bedroom dressers... and one guy even keeps his collection on top of his piano! This is a unique decorative item, bound to catch the attention of visitors to your home or office.
