Ceramic Giant Toad of the North (Põhjakonn)

Põhjakonn | Giant Toad of the North

 

A small-scale sculpture that grew out of a commission piece for a friend that needed a model for an outdoor sculpture that could survive on a rock in shallow sea. It ended up looking like this: https://scontent-frt3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/11056570_858637050857935_1235386284868990739_o.jpg

However, I felt that I liked the model and wanted to develop it further. So, I used the mould to assemble a ceramic model and added some textures, refined some forms and facets. Now I’m waiting for it to come out of the kiln, to be able to take a new mould and reproduce the new model for some other variations and perhaps to sell some as decorative sculptures.
