The Lure

Size: 16″ X 10”

Material: maple, bronze, black lip mother of pearl

Method: hammered, welded, carved

Found in some of the deepest parts of the ocean, anglerfish shine a bioluminescent light to lure potential prey. Once the soon-to-be-a-meal comes within reach, the anglerfish’s enormous and toothy mouth swallows it. The piece of maple burl is part carved (the mouth) and part natural (the body). The fins are welded and hammered bronze.
