About This Project


Size: 90″ X 29”

Material: curly maple, redwood, bronze, steel, abalone,
poplar wood

Method: hammered, welded, carved, forged

Wahoo captures the streamlined power and elegance of a fish that ranks among the fastest in the ocean. The bodies are curly redwood and curly maple because the wood’s tiger stripes match the bold striping of the fish. Capturing the curving path of these fish communicates their vitality. The head and fins are hammered and welded out of bronze, and saw blades serve as teeth. The eyes are steel, and recessed pieces of abalone serve as the pupils.
