Eden Prairie Artist Mark Gottschalk's Fish Sculptures

Eden Prairie artist Mark Gottschalk puts a modern spin on fins.

Mark Gottschalk has been making art for over 30 years now, but the past three have been mostly spent creating “contemporary interpretations” of fish through the medium of sculpture. Inspired by his lifelong interest in fishing, Gottschalk makes 24 varieties of fish from mahogany, polished metals or other painted wood. His wooden fish were featured in our holiday gift guide (November 2011), but the new metal fish, which are designed to stand on a desk or a mantle, have us hooked all over again.
