"Kite Critters" by Carol And Ed Thompson

   
 

Garden Fountain with Bowl

 

"An octopus, a fish, a lobster, a frog, a shark in the sky, and lady bugs on the beach are just a few of the critters you might spot at a kite festival.”

Artist Comment: "At kite festivals everywhere, new and creative designs appear against the sky. My favorites are the innovative 'critters' that I see. Some are so unusual they defy categorizing. The bizarre and unique are worthy to be photographed, painted, and eventually sculpted in bas-relief with plastalina clay. As I translate my drawing onto the flat clay base, I am mentally sculpting each image. Having composed a pleasing arrangement, I also keep in mind how it will look as a fountain when the water cascades down from the center spout. In the right light they shimmer and seem almost alive."

 


"Kite Critters" 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:

Kite Critters Fountain - 12" tall X 8" wide X 4" deep - approximately 40 pounds

Kite Critters Plaque - 12" tall X 8" wide X 1 1/2" deep - approximately 20 pounds
