"Crow Lovers" by Carol And Ed Thompson

Garden Fountain with bowl

Garden Plaque

"A pair of 'crow lovers' stands on a driftwood branch over the pebbly beach.”

Artist Comment: "Crows are fascinating, intelligent birds. They are tender, loving, and nurturing. When I saw this pair at the ocean shore, they were totally 'wrapped up' in each other. I did a quick sketch from which I went directly to model them in clay. I used a real twig from my lilac bush, and genuine sand and rocks from the beach. On a sheet of artist's 'plasticine' clay, I embedded the twig and miniature rocks and sand. I then sculpted the crows (in bas relief) to be posed beak-to-beak on the branch. Painting them black put the icing on the cake. When the fountain runs, the crows look as if they are winking."


 

"Crow Lovers" 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:

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

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

Bowl - approximately 19" diameter - approximately 60 pounds
