Balloonfish

I’ve had this unfortunate little preserved blowfish (sometimes known as “balloon fish”) on a shelf in my home for years. During a recent bout of “Oh man, what am I going to make now?” I had the inspiration to develop it into an airship. In hindsight, I can now say that blowfish is among the most challenging sculpture mediums I have attempted to work with.
