John Dory

This was a commission produced for a ladies garden and the first of two commissions. The John Dory fish was made from sheet copper, hand cut, shaped and acid etched. Varnish was strategically painted on in anticipation of the weather’s effects upon the copper. I wanted to encourage the effects of the weather to produce further colour diversity in the metal whilst preserving the beautiful qualities of the copper in other areas. You can follow the link below to view a video of John Dory when he was just completed.
