SWELL Smalls Gallery 2023 Artwork – The Waste Snapper

I created this piece out of my love for marine life . The ocean is filled with such amazing looking creatures so I had plenty of inspiration for this sculpture. Sadly the ocean is full of our waste killing a lot of aquatic species and I thought why not make a fish from waste and hopefully get some people thinking about this issue. ‘The Snapper’ can be turned to create the sound of an over head fishing reel as well.
