About This Project

Taking Flight

Size: 5’6” x 28”

Material: bronze, sycamore wood, perota wood

Method: hammered, welded, carved, forged

Flying fish are some of the only sea animals able to leave the water and glide through the air, and this sculpture captures the excitement of their taking to the sky. Taking Flight features two airborne fish, and a third is building up speed so it can join them. The base is stylistically carved out of perota wood to resemble ripples on the ocean surface.
