"Elephant" by Carol And Ed Thompson

 
 

Garden Fountain with Bowl

Garden Plaque

"Any manner of creature is likely to 'pop up' at the annual kite festival, even a blue 'elephant'.”

Artist Comment: "It seems that kite makers get more creative every year. From simple diamond shapes and basic box kites, new and innovative designs fill the skies of the big international kite festivals. This elephant head is one! The uncomplicated design makes it ideal for a sculpture. I sketched and painted it after she show and recently decided to make a fountain using this image in bas relief. On a smooth background of modelling clay, I laid down layers of clay to build up a three dimensional figure. The final touches were the expressive eyes and 'wrinkles' on the trunk."


 

"Elephant" 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:

Elephant Fountain - 10 1/2" tall X 6" wide X 4" deep - approximately 25 pounds

Elephant Plaque - 10 1/2" tall X 6" wide X 1 1/2" deep - approximately 15 pounds

Bowl - approximately 10" diameter - approximately 25 pounds
