Frogs are found in many ponds; some koi hobbyist even introduces frogs to their koi pond. This particular frog I sculpted is considered a leopard frog. However, the leopard frog patterns were not added.
I love the greenish patina used on this bronze. The throat area has a whitish patina, which gives one the impression that the skin a round the throat area is being stretched as the frog fills his throat with air.
The bronze depicts a frog sitting on two lily pads as he croaks.
The size of this bronze sculpture makes it a wonderful desktop piece, great for any office or home.
This sculpture was cast at Andevan Bronzeworks located in Burbank, California. The bronze foundry uses the finest pure bronze available. The foundries talented team of artisans is very consistent in the quality of bronzes they produce.
The foundry’s patina artist applied the patina under high heat so that it has permanently fused into the bronze itself. This is a high quality and classic work of fine art that will continue to be treasured for centuries.
The sculpture is free standing at 3" high, by 9.75" in length; 5.5” wide. It is an open edition bronze and signed by me.
Bronze frog with two lilly pads was sculpted to be part of the 27" bronze koi; however, most of the koi hobbyists I spoke with preferred the bronze koi without the frog. As a result I am offering the frog and lilies as a freestanding bronze.

I decided to sculpt a frog croaking since I did not recall ever seeing one sculpted.

The green patina used for the frog complements it nicely.
