have built and maintained fish ponds everywhere I've lived
since 1989, even building a few extras for friends and family
along the way. The ponds have ranged between the size of
a buffet pan to the 11' x 8' "Lake Victoria" viewable
from my workbench. The urban raccoons and blue herons that
thrive in Atlanta have deterred me from having anything
more exotic than comets, but the antics and, believe it
or not, personalities of these fish have inspired many drawings
and a few works in metal. I love being able to catch the
twists and turns of their darting bodies in a material that
would seem to defy their softness.
have kept this necklace in my private collection for a number
of years but have decided to let it go, provided someone
will give it a good home, (feed it regularly, etc). I repoussed
the fish and chased each scale
with a tool that I made specifically for that purpose. The
fish is curved laterally to ensure that it lays well across
the upper chest and collar bones. The chain links are the
bubbles it blows near the surface.
