How The Bronze Frogs Are Made

For artist Tim Cotterill, the shiny little frogs found in the secluded woods of his childhood in the English countryside were the beginning of a life-long fascination that has led him to be known as the Frogman. Tim’s bronze sculptures capture the whimsical character, jewel-like quality and pure joy of these beautiful little creatures.

Tim Cotterill’s collection of bronze frogs, while giving the appearance of having been made from glass, are actually incredibly heavy, having been cast in solid bronze. They are created following The Egyptian Lost Wax Method and a 6 step process that finally results in the stunning jewel-like patina.

Signed & Numbered

The Frogman Sculptures also have an individual number and signature applied to the underside of one of the feet as a permanent and easily recognisable sign of originality.

The range of the Frogman bronzes available fluctuates due to worldwide demand and in addition to the general and new releases available, there are also special limited edition figures released solely for the UK ; frogs produced in unique patinas exclusively for shows and artist proof editions that are released in very low numbers to “prove the concept” in advance of a general release.

Finally, if something goes wrong and you accidentally damage your frog, don’t worry ! All the sculptures can be repaired and are completely re-coated as good as new. Just Contact Us for Details of the set prices to repair each frog.
