Meet Anglora: a Larger Than Life Upcycled Angler Fish Metal Sculpture of Shipwreck Remnants and Industrial Metal Findings - Giant Lure Fish

Anglora, the original Twisted Metals Shop Mascot, is the embodiment of turning discarded objects into beauty and function. This gargantuan metal sculpture, which features a fully functional glass globe solar light lure encased in a metal orb, has been a work in progress for nearly one year. She is very near and dear to my heart as she is truly one of a kind AND has become our iconic shop mascot.

Anglora has been a source of inspiration for all of us here at Twisted Metals, as well as the subject of many fun and memorable Twisted Metals shop photo shoots. She weighs approximately 400 - 500 lbs (like most of us, she is not enamored by the idea of getting on a scale) and is composed of thousands of different up cycled metal bits and nautical findings. Her many parts include, but are not limited to:, massive industrial bolts (pulled from Charlotte's old, iconic cotton mill), various vintage shipwreck remnants from the East Coast & a ship graveyard in Homer, Alaska, hundreds of vintage door latch plates, as well as salvaged metal from various beaches & buildings doomed for demolition. Anglora has a little bit of everything from our past and present. She is truly a new life created from old.

As a one-of-a-kind work of art, Anglora comes with a plaque of authenticity signed by the artist. She will never be re-made or reproduced.

Though we adore her, we have more than outgrown our current home-based work space thanks to our wonderful, supportive customers. We are so very grateful to all of you who have made the dream of creating artwork full-time a reality. In order to obtain a larger workspace so that we can continue to produce our classic, patented Spoon Fish Wind Chimes as well as hundreds of other works of art for our loyal customers, we have decided to let Anglora swim away to a new home. She comes perched upon her metal display base.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this sculpture will be donated to nautical wildlife preservation. A cause that we feel very strongly about an continuously support through donations to various organizations as well as our own efforts to raise awareness of the detriment being done to our lakes, rivers and oceans by the careless practices of both individuals and larger entities.

We will be happy to deliver and assemble Anglora, personally, to a new home within approximately 300 miles of Charlotte, NC, or if her new destiny awaits outside of that driving radius, we will have her carefully transported by a professional shipping service.

Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions. Thank you all for your support over the past 3 years! I can't wait to see where Anglora will travel...

Spoon Fish Care Instructions

All our wind chimes may be kept both indoors and out. Silver plate will naturally tarnish to a golden brown hue over time. While we find many prefer the tarnished version it is also possible to maintain a new polished look with ease. If you desire your chimes to remain polished and need no additional attention we have had great success with a light beeswax rubbing. ( Simply take warm beeswax & rub onto each fish then wipe until all visible signs are gone )
Our preferred method is super easy! You don't even need to take your chime down for cleaning. Simply scrub the fish with a dab of hand sanitizer & wipe clean with a towel once a year. Amount needed seems vary by location - busier cities do best with twice per year due to smog.

Dont wait for oppor-tuna-ty to knock, seize the day instead. Warning a boat load of crappie puns ahead. I would apologize but it was done on porpoise. The following is a test for site ranking. You see, I am just a small fish in a big pond. I must continuously test the waters to stay afloat.

You see I'm reel-ly just an artist adapting to a sails lady life. Feel free to read, be entertained & then ignore. If you have questions or need kelp be shore to let minnow. Just churning the waters of the internet.
Whale these are sear-iously wind-chimes with sole! Shore to make everyone smile. Sea-ducing silver spoon fish simply sound swell. Fin-tastic flying flatware crafted into friendly fishy fun. Give a gift you'll be eel-ated to give. Perfect for any buoy or gill. Buoy if your are still reading you are determined. I'm not waiting for someone to throw me a line, I will make my own oppor-tuna-ty. Who says you have to be a small fry. Why swim when you can soar? You guys have been swell, but it's time for me to sail away.
