Weathered copper frog mobile on lily pad

Fourteen years of Christmas Gift Art

Christmas shopping in the boondocks had its limitations. My budget did too.(still does!)

I was just starting to produce sculpture.

Why not make a few gifts? So it began. Fourteen years ago. The Pollock Christmas collection.

Funny thing though, the artwork that was being made at that time really didn’t have a Christmas theme. (frogs? really?)That has changed over the years.

Frog mobiles were first because thats what I was working on at that point. They were well received so I kept making artistic gifts as well as other sculptures.

The posts from now thru Christmas will be of the Christmas  gifts I made for friends and family instead of shopping.

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.

Future:)

  1. We were eating inside, and I was sitting where I could see part of the back porch. Our frog was dancing in the wind! He was having a wonderful time on the railing, glad to be anchored firmly by a big rock. Even in his old age, I love that frog.
