This Is a New Drinking Fountain For Beall Park.
A neigboorhood park in the north east side of
Bozeman, Mt. It is the second Drinking Fountain
I have done for my town. I am most thankful to the
City Of Bozeman, The wonderful people I have got work with
the other artist involved, as well as all the kids and sponsors.
I am not naming names, For there are so many,
I wouldn’t want to leave any out.
Sculpted out of wet clay, we just cut off the arm,
For the molding process.
After the mold is finished we are taking the plaster,
“Mother Mold” off. Then the rubber.
Rough Cast Bronze Panels, no bigger than 22″
Cast in about 28 pieces,
now they have to be tig welded together.
After about 40 hours of metal work
the frog is almost assembled…almost.
You can see where the panels come together
and have not been welded…
