The Aquarium sparse
Another piece created on request, that Janine & I both really liked. We have slightly mixed it up from the original piece and decided to add it to our full time range. Our head on snapper or grouper is the central figure. As a single fish we sell and call him Snapper Attack.
He measures 550mm /520mm /30mm As you can see we have surrounded him with a very colourful mix of different species of fish. Some are running from him, others are joining in.
We have used our under size snapper coloured 3 different ways. Hand painted blue includes a paua shell eye and engraved scales. A few airbrushed ones that have bright orange & red paint with fluorescent white/blue spots and painted scales. A heat treated one in our gold colour range includes paua shell eye & scales engraved. These fish are definitely has friends and are up for a lesson on how to gather lunch.
Our small Pilchards that have been airbrushed with our awesome scaly pattern across the top. They are in greens and yellows. Then A mixture of our skinnier and fatter round baitfish. Coloured with all our techniques. Airbrushed, heated & hand painted. These you could say are on the menu!! 🙂
All cut from 316 marine grade stainless steel. We then add our Jiwa Steel style grinding, engraving, heating, painting, rolling & shaping, paua eyes and clear coat spraying before assembling to create the finished piece. All our art is hand crafted so no two pieces are ever quite the same! Stainless steel chain on back for easy installation, also allows for easy set up of how you like to see the fish swimming on your wall.
Dimensions are L- 900mm W-510mm D-75mm
