Tofte Fish Project
Finishing up a project to be installed in the park in Tofte overlooking Lake Superior. The idea is to show life sized fish that inhabit the lake along with some reference to the people who fish commercially for our Lake Superior species.
The picture shows the beginning of the casting mold making process. I have five herring made in wax from molds I took of actual fish. The big one is a lake trout. This is what they look like after the first coat of the refractory mold material. 9 more coats to go.
