A playfully unique
freestanding, life-size sculpture made entirely of copper and
mounted on a solid stone base for maximum stability and ease
This custom work of art
has been specially designed for water feature immersion.
Not only beautiful but
quite functional as well. This piece creates a little shelter
from the sun for the real Koi swimming by and using its shadow.
Playing amongst the wild
reeds and cattails, this colorful fish springs up out of the
reeds for lunch.
Each individual scale is
hand cut and separately brazed into place one at a time. This
emulates the wonderful diversity found in nature with no two
scales being exactly the same.
A large dragonfly hovers
above, just out of reach clinging onto a cattail. His big bright
eyes shinning in the sunlight attract the eye.
The dragonfly's little
legs are all brazed on the bottom so there are no rough edges
that can cut tender fingers.
All copper edges are softly
rounded or brazed to prevent harm when installing or moving a
piece of copper art.
All copper we use is safe
for fish and foliage alike.
The finishing element is
a colorful starfish who is climbing onto the rock seeking shelter
within the reeds below.
The bright colors of the
starfish are clearly visible through the water after the art
is submerged. Softly glistening below the surface it draws the
eye down into the water to experience the entire piece.
Various combinations of
chemicals and heat concentrations are repeatedly applied to the
copper, with a hand painted patina process which creates the
vast color differences. These colors will continue to evolve
and change with time.
Copper is the only medium
that continues to paint itself throughout its lifespan.
This entire sculpture is
simply removed from the stone base for ease of movement, placement
Ideal for interior or exterior
setting. Great for placement with the base underwater within
a water feature.
