Magneto Mackerel, for me was really driven by

some of it's components; specifically the motorcycle ignition magneto and the bits of an old shoe spreader. I loved incorporating the copper of the magneto into the piece and felt that the spreader

bit gave the fish a visual and tactile feel of actual

fish skin.

Some of the bits and pieces that make up Magneto Mackerel include saw blades, motorcycle seat brackets, drill bits, ignition magneto, brake springs, chainsaw chain, shoe spreader, horseshoe, tin snips, motorcycle brake disc and other bits whose origins escape my mind.
