Here’s an empty can of clams – well, it was empty.
Available in the shop!
Here is another piece that is part of the ArtScape exhibition Ebb & Flow.
Artscape runs from July 17-19. Please go to the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Fox Building; 1301 Mt. Royal Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21217.
My original sketches have a lot of sea detritus to accompany this fishwife. I opted to go with “less is more” and left it out of the final version (although I did enjoy cutting out several fish skeletons).
This is the first diorama I’ve completed in one of several copper and aluminum fish molds that I recently acquired.
Her scales alone took me (almost) 3 days to complete. I made each row separately and attached with shims underneath to raise them ever so slightly.
I also have spoons in this show, all of which are for sale. I hope to see you at Artscape!
Cento makes small, single serving size tuna cans, which happen to work well for dioramas. One of the things I like about this piece was cutting out all the scales on the fish.
