“Flounder de Ferrum” was created for the Art-Drive‘s 2014 “Flippin Flounder” campaign, where Art-Drive members are each tasked with making a flounder in their medium. The flounders are displayed in the local area before the drive, and then auctioned off as part of a fundraising campaign in the days leading up to, and after, the drive.
The Flippin Flounders debuted July 18th at the Westport Rivers Winery’s Friday evening concert and following their debut, they are displayed at various locations in Dartmouth and Westport, MA until the Art-Drive open studio tour August 9th and 10th.
You can see “Flounder de Ferrum” on display at Partner’s Village Store and Kitchen until August 8, 2014.
On August 9th and 10th the Art Drive will take place and my shop and artwork will be on display and available for purchase. Please feel free to stop by and say hi!
From August 2-12, 2014, the Flippin Flounders will be auctioned off through an EBay Auction. The proceeds from the auction will go to benefit the Lloyd Center for the Environment; the Art-Drive and the individual artists.
Flounder de Ferrum is hand-formed and english wheeled from T-304 16 Gauge stainless steel and molten stainless steel for the eyes and other features. The piece was welded together using the Tungsten Inert Gas (T.I.G.) welding process and the patina was obtained by oxidizing the stainless with heat. It measures about 22″ in height, 4″ in depth and 42″ in width
