Black and Gold Fish

75.00

Dimensions: 19.5" long x 4" tall x 4" thick. Weighs 5 pounds.

This wood fish was handmade by Marc Deloach from cypress he salvaged in the Mississippi Delta. I, Christine Schultz, handpainted it with iridescent bronze, copper, and black acrylic paint. It's the perfect gift for a friend, a relative, or yourself. No two are the same. This bronze fish has a copper eye, gill, and lips. I painted his bronze scales over a black base for depth and painted the edges for a multi-dimensional effect. His fins and tail are black with copper and white markings. He's over a foot and a half long and is made of salvaged cypress with slight textures that show the wood's history. He's a real catch, ready to ship.

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. 

On the back: My husband nailed a notched metal piece over a drilled, inletted circle, so that the fish will balance flush to the wall from a single nail or screw head. He will also sit upright on a flat surface. On the back you can see the original reclaimed cypress. My signature, Christine Schultz, is there, as well. 

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.
