JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2019

For the mount, I carved the body out of scrap urethane foam, tracing the curve of the fish, cutting the outline on a bandsaw and rasping it down to nearly fit. A threaded rod runs the length of the body, giving a it a strong support. White fish clay was inserted into the head and tail junctures to blend the body into the skin. I used the same white fish clay material to fill the cheek pockets. The mount sits atop a Calloway’s pedestal with a removable insert where the threaded rod, the habitat water, and splash are mounted. This allows me to remove the fish and splash from the pedestal for ease in transporting the piece.
