This Modern Family of butterfly fish representatives a theme common in today's families. Created from kiln-shaped 6mm recycled glass, each fish, like each family member, is distinctive, having been hand painted before firing. One of the "children" appreciated the love shown a stranger by the "parents" and adopted them as her family. She doesn't know and no one has told her, that's she is different. And like with any large family at, least one "child" will go his own way, hopefully to return later in life. The Family is 28 inches long by 7 inches tall, and 1.75 inches deep. The sharp contract between the ocean-blue background and the yellows of the butterfly fish becomes the focus of any room.
Dave creates functional and decorative art from recycled glass, wood, and other sustainable materials. Many of the materials were saved from 1000 years in a land fill and now have new purpose. The recycled content of each piece exceeds 75% recycled with recycled materials including the glass and frames.
