"Clamdiggers" by Carol And Ed Thompson

 
 

Garden Fountain with Bowl

Garden Plaque

"As the sun sets and the tide recedes, clamdiggers begin their task of harvesting the tasty razor clams on a Washington beach.”

Artist Comment: "Translating a print of a painting into a three dimensional sculpture for a fountain was an interesting challenge. I had to take into consideration the final result of water running over the image. Having completed several fountains and observed the water in motion, I had a pretty good idea what to expect. Staying true to the art print (prints), I created a master on tracing paper. I rolled a flat slab of 'plastalina' oil based clay as a base. After incising the image onto the base, I rolled and molded pieces of clay to build a bas-relief sculpture of the clamdiggers in typical poses with the various 'tools of the trade'! The sculpture was then used to make a silicone mold from which a concrete fountain was created."


 

"Clamdiggers" is a sculpture in plastalina clay by Carol Thompson. Silicone is poured over the sculpture to create a mold for pouring the concrete. The tubing for the water is included in the pour for fountains. Color may be added to the pour of the fountain or plaque. The bowl is handmade by Ed Thompson. It is usually colored to complement the fountain or plaque. All bowls are double sealed; once with a 'cure and seal' and once with a rubberized sealer. All bowls are tested to prevent seepage. Bowls can be used with fountains to contain the water and pump or with plaques as bonsai's or succulent gardens (holes may have to be drilled to allow for drainage). Specifics are as follows:

Clamdiggers Fountain - 15" tall X 12" wide X 4" deep - approximately 60 pounds

Clamdiggers Plaque - 15" tall X 12" wide X 1 1/2" deep - approximately 25 pounds
