These whimsical fish art pieces are made of recycled house keys and found objects.

Pricing ranges from around $200 and averages mainly in the mid-hundreds and is available directly from me and sometimes a local art gallery or two.

My first fish, but sans keys.  The key idea came later— at first I screwed each key onto the wood, but soon I found I had more creative possibilities soldering the keys to each other.  Currently, I am sometimes soldering the keys to metal backgrounds which I can decorate with patinas.  The fish scales can also be patinated.  Sometimes my soldering is neat, sometimes “goopy” depending on the personality of the fish.

This fish family was first exhibited in the Crest Hardware 2013 show in Brooklyn.
Now owned by Ronald McDonald Charities of the Capital Region and making the Ronald McDonald House a little bit cheerier.
