This is "Arthur"
ceramic w/metal coating

A little drunk? Or maybe just getting comfy in a shallow pool of water in the sun.
He's an African Elephant, a one of a kind sculpture (no mold).

I made this guy out of clay, fired him at cone 04, then coated him with a metal coating - a mix of Forton and lots of copper, iron and aluminum dust. After I applied the coating, I worked the surface alternately with steel wool and cold patina solutions to oxidize the metal. When it was just the right color, thats when I added the sculpture wax to get a nice sheen and to protect it.

I'll ship this guy via UPS, with PLENTY of padding and insurance to do the job
Happy to sign his rump with silver ink upon request.

If you live near Portland and would like to pick him up at my studio, contact me directly about purchasing without paying the postage fee!

Feel free to contact me directly with any questions about him or the process!
Also, Ive only listed a price for shipping within the U.S., if you are outside the U.S. and are interested, just drop me a note and Ill find out what the shipping charge would be
