An impromptu video re the process of Todd Miller working on a Beau Smith frog sculpture.
Pictures of Beau working on a sculpture.
Here I am cutting out arms for my dancing frog.
Here I am adjusting the arms and a working on the hands and fingers.
A close up of working on the hands and fingers.
Adjusting the arms...
Cutting out and preparing fingers.
Tack welding the arms... And so it goes. Always more work. This sculpture will need eyes and more brazing (welding with brass).
Here I am designing some basses for frogs playing bass.
I map it out on stainless steel.
Here I am using a plasma cutter to cut out the shapes.
Noxious fumes abound. This is serious, intensive labor.
Another shot of me cutting stainless steel.
Lots of crates of lots of frogs: sold.
