The metal art pieces created by Henry (Tony) Van Dyke are all handcrafted and custom-made. The name Aqua Metal Art was chosen to reflect the artist's love of the sea and the incredible variety of life it nurtures. He spent much of his childhood dreaming of sharks, stingrays, rockfish, grouper, crabs, and of course, mermaids. The conservation of our oceans and the Chesapeake Bay is very important to him. He hopes his realistic designs of ocean life will help educate everyone about the importance of preserving the natural habitat of these underwater creatures. All products are made from recycled metal!
