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