Little Hogfish in Red

Wood & Metal Sculpture

Created by Mark Gottschalk
This interesting little fish can be found in the West Atlantic as well as the Gulf of Mexico, especially the Florida Keys. Its interesting features are the inspiration for this design, particularly the dorsal fin. The brushed aluminum finish on the fins and bone fractures the light. The transparent colors allow the natural grain of the wood to show through. Part of a series of colorful, one-of-a-kind fish. The body is soft maple, a sustainable hardwood harvested in the USA. The transparent color is blended in a resin that is totally VOC free.
