Each half of the "trap" is 2 ft wide plus the additional length of the wine bottle "teeth". They are made from waste polystyrene, cement and fiberglass layers, then applied scrap and recycled glass mosaic. The support structure mimics the plant structure with a large broad leaf (made from garage rails and patio umbrella supports). There are some "swampy" details such as flowers and a snail.
It will be on exhibit for a couple of months, then looking for a permanent home.... or swamp.

He is also my favorite assistant. He is helpful with ideas and structural considerations. He is strong and able to help lift some of my sculptures for installations. He cuts wood panels for me and other related tasks. He has a truck and is willing to volunteer when I need him. He is proud of me.
His favorite flower is a dandelion.
