Big Red Fish
Big Red Fish
Dimensions: 15" long x 7" tall x 2" thick. Weighs 4.5 pounds.
This wood fish was handmade by Marc Deloach from cypress he salvaged in the Mississippi Delta. I, Christine Schultz, handpainted it in red and gold acrylics. It's the perfect gift for a friend, a relative, or yourself. No two are the same. This big-mouth fish is over a foot long. She has a gold eye, lips, and gill. Her tail and fins are black with red, white and gold markings. She's made of salvaged cypress with slight textures that show the wood's history. I painted the two-inch edges to create a multi-dimensional effect. She's a real catch, ready to ship.
On the back: Marc nailed a notched metal piece over a drilled, inletted circle, so that the fish will balance from a single nail or screw head flush to the wall. You can see the original reclaimed cypress on back. My signature, Christine Schultz, is there, as well.
Hang this fish anywhere--in a dining room, kitchen, kids’ room, over a doorway or stairway, in a bathroom or bedroom, covered porch, lakehouse, or wherever you’d like a pop of color and whimsy. One is great. Groupings are even better.
Care and handling: While these fish are fun and durable, they’re not meant as playthings for kids or to last outside directly in the weather. However, a covered porch is fine. We're happy to custom make fish. Just ask.
