Tree Frog Sculpture – an expressionistic sculpture of a Pacific tree frog with blue-green copper patina designed and made by artist Cindy Cantelon.
One of Cindy’s many frog sculpture designs. This little guy was modelled after the Pacific tree frog. This tree frog sculpture is cast in lead-free fine silver pewter and copper plated with a blue-green patina verdigris finish. The patina is created by a heat treating process done with a mineral mixed water and paint on while heating to very hot until the colour builds up. It’s a laborious process and the results vary, which makes each piece unique. Then remove it from the high points on the frog to bring out the copper detail. The patina is then set with a protective clear coat. It gives the piece a great smooth feeling and a terrific look.
Cindy’s formal studies were in fine art, painting, drawing, photography and sculpture. She lives and works with her husband, Marshall creating art at their country home/workshop/studio on the west coast of British Columbia, just a couple hours and one ferry ride northwest of Vancouver.
Nature is Cindy’s inspiration. She has been creating her Earthly Creatures Designs for over 25 years!
They hand design and produce all their art metal work. Their designs start off as an idea, then are carved and sculpted in wax and cast in bronze using the lost wax method. They create all our jewellery and small sculpture designs. Some of the materials they used are sterling silver, gold, bronze, copper and silver pewter. The pewter we use is 100% lead-free with a touch of real silver in it. It’s the highest quality pewter one can use. The copper plating is of the finest quality.
Each one of their pewter pieces is handcrafted so no two finishes will look exactly the same. Their unique patinas are true and strong and sealed with a clear protective coating.
