ABSTRACT FISH - These come in any of many original shapes. Three (minimum order) are $35 (includes shipping). Matt will try to send a variety of shapes. These make very nice and economical gifts. Check the CURRENTLY AVAILABLE page to see what others are available.
The Marlin above is about 5.5 feet long. The detail is better than this poor photo shows. The body, including the bill and the center portion of the tail and part of the dorsal fin, is of a single piece of white cedar. All the extended fins are added. The color is achieved by selectively burning with a propane torch. This is a one-sided carving since it is meant to hang on a wall. This was made for outdoor use and has many coats of polyurethane, but it would be fine for indoor use also. $500.
KITCHEN FISH - A variety of colored "kitchen" fish,
about 9 inches long. These are $50 for 3 fish (minimum order), plus
$5 shipping. State the colors you would like. For example,
if you choose red you may get any of the red ones (and others) shown above.
These make very welcome hand-made gifts.
The flounders shown below are "Kitchen Flounders".
They make great hanging ornaments and can also be used as hot plates for
frying pans (they cannot be hurt if used this way, and will develop a beautiful
patina from such use.) These are popular as gifts. Prices range
from $15 for one about 6.5 inches to $75 for one about 2.5 feet.
A minimum order would have to be $45. All are signed by Matt.
The butterfly fish above is suspended on a wire above
a piece of driftwood. It is about 5 inches long and costs $80 (includes
