  • the story

Scaled Up Steel

Bubbling over with personality from face to fin, this gutsy guppy makes a splash indoors and out! This fabulous fish's scales are made out of a dense mélange of welded scraps of sheet metal. The entire sculpture is composed of smooth and jagged shapes, as well as globules of solder, which give it a one-of-a-kind texture and rough-hewn ruggedness. Unlike real water-bound critters, this fishy thrives in the open air and will hook admirerers whether he swims around your yard or garden, or hangs like an animal-friendly trophy bass on your wall. Handmade by VonChandler - in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

  • the maker

VonChandler -

With a winning sense of humor and a great eye for sculpture, artist Von Chandler specializes in one-of-a-kind metalwork that is both dramatic and whimsical. Chandler is a self-described lover of art who wishes he had known his true calling way back in grade school when his intimidating teacher inquired about his aspirations. Now happily married and the proud owner of a home littered with sculptures, he enjoys nothing more than working with his hands and discussing art with other artists. He did once think he'd be a ninja when he grew up, but is kind of glad that didn't happen. collection

        We bought two of these. While I understand that they are one of a kind, the two were REALLY different from each other. One faced left, one faced right. One had a hook to hang it by, the other did not. I just sent one of them back and am hoping the next one faces the same direction of the one I kept and comes with a hook as described.

          Plan to have hubby weld a metal stake and have Mr. Fish floating above my large pool planters with another metal fish I purchased at a gallery (I paid more for that one and I like yours better!). Waiting for the snow to melt.

                  Bought the metal fish sculpture as a Christmas gift for my husband. It arrived very well packed and looks exactly like it did on the website. It has a matte finish and the pieces are welded nicely. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

                    This is a Christmas gift for some friends of mine and I haven't given it to them yet but I can't wait. It's sturdier, bigger and more awesome then I expected. I can picture it either inside or outside. I wish someone would give it to me!

                      I bought two of these for my wife. They both had a similar overall appearence but were made from totally different scrap parts. So they are each unique. So far it's doing great in the weather. No rust yet. And they ended up having a couple of clasps on the back for hanging. Love them!

                        We bought this piece to put in the garden but liked the looks so much that we decided to put it in the house. It is a nice size, is sturdy and feels hand made.
