Retired fisherman Raymond Funchion begins with a frozen fish, pressing it into plaster to make a mold that he then fills with ceramic. The result is a real catch. Funchion's solid glazed fish sculptures look as slick and lively as the real thing.
At thirty-one inches, Funchion's long blue fish, $295, shows remarkable detail, from the long gill slits to the feathery fins to the needle sharp teeth. It can be hung, mounted on wood, or even tiled into a wall. Best of all, it's guaranteed not to get away.
