Pink Bullfrog

Norm Sartorius

2004    Size   H: 3 in  W: 6.5 in  D: 10 in  

In a private collection - Collection of Elizabeth Mai & John Gobrecht

Fantastic material inspires new work. In this case I wanted as broad and gently curving a surface as possible to expose this breathtaking wood's virtues. I've always enjoyed how a bull frog blows up it's throat area to make the low bullfrog call. That fat pouched out - filled ballon vision was the seed idea for this very big spoon bowl. I understand that this spoon has been kept in a black bag in a drawer on all but special occasions and therefore is still vividly pink.
