Big City Fish "Swamp Bar Fiberglass Tree" R and D Studio

This fiberglass tree was created for Big City Fish's "Swamp Bar" in Coconut Grove, Florida. First , we carved a reverse mold of the tree trunk from a wooden half-pipe lined with foam. After the foam was sealed with a resin base we applied fiberglass hair and mesh. The trunks structure was then reinforced with a steel frame and painted with oil-based, flat finish.
