Danger from Above
The beak on this quirky egret is made from a hedge clipper purchased at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore in Santa Cruz, CA. The bird's feathers are made of aluminum soda cans, and its legs are rebar from near the artists home.
The fish are made of Ventana resin brush handles that were used in the production of our surfboards.
The water is chain link fencing wire, and the plants are made of cable spool bolts and phone wire. The frame is a vintage window sash from Soquel Village. The backing is reclaimed plywood.
Dimensions: 27" x 48"
