A one piece sculpture of a speckled trout. Overall size 11" x 19". Copper is heated with a propane torch and becomes soft and pliable. I use a collection of implements to cut and punch holes and lines in it and hammer it into shape on an anvil. As you bend and manipulate it, it becomes more firm. It's an interesting metallurgical operation and quite fun. I sealed it with a coat of laquer and attached it to a solid mahogany raised panel.
