    Silverware being used to create large fish sculpture in downtown Mystic

    Clint Wright studies a fork, to decide whether to use it as a fish scale while working on his striped bass sculpture titled ‘Pisces’ Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2022, outside his workshop in the Noank section of Groton. S&P Oyster Restaurant in Mystic commissioned the sculpture. The frame of Wright’s sculpture is made from old boat railings and a steel rack. Wright is using forks for the scales of the fish, knives for the tail and some spoons, all supplied by S&P. Wright said the only thing he needed to purchase for the project are welding rods. The sculpture when it is upright and mounted to its base will be approximately 16 to 18 feet tall, depending on the foundation, and will be located between the restaurant and the drawbridge.
