Frogs are one of my favorite subjects to carve. A tree frog can adapt perfectly to any shape in the antler. And they are just plain FUN. They make me smile. I carved these frogs during the March 2020 lockdown, when most people were dealing with stress and uncertainty. Thus the name “Hang in There”.
Tree frogs carved in a single piece of naturally shed caribou antler and mounted on driftwood. The sculpture is 24 “ wide and 26” high (including the base). The base is painted bright green, which reminds me of frogs.
This carving is the result of blending traditional materials with modern carving techniques. I design and carve all of my jewelry and sculpture in my studio/ workshop located in Brackley Beach, Prince Edward Island.
I use antler, which is naturally shed and regrown by the animal each year. Once carved, each piece is sanded and buffed to highly polished finish. Each sculpture is signed.
Drift wood is painted with a thin wash of acrylic paint so that the effects of the wear of the ocean water are not hidden.
