FISH TALE by Van Dusen Clockworks is an imaginative art assemblage that hearkens back to an earlier time. Its wonderful hand-made appearance is reminiscent of the antique trade signs from the 1900′s. This one-of-a-kind sculpture was made by Van Dusen Clockworks and made of vintage and antique found objects, as well as the artist hand-carved fish head made of Basswood. Some of the elements include an antique bicycle tank for the fish body and parts of a cross cut saw for the fins. Other components of Fish Tale include an antique weight scale, large iron caliper and a wrought iron bracket for a lamp.
This unique art assemblage is another creation from Van Dusen Clockworks and includes a name fob with the title of the piece and the artist signature plaque. Like other works by this artist, it also has a working quartz movement clock.
Fish Tale is the perfect piece the fishing enthusiast. This sculpture would be right at home on a fireplace mantle in a lakeside cabin or a lodge. I could also see this as a focal point for a restaurant or seafood fish market. Its display is sure to attract the attention of your customers.
