Walking Elephant

A male African elephant ambles along in this one of a kind bronze sculpture.

  • Unique bronze casting
  • Lifelike skin texture
  • Green marble base

This bronze sculpture of an African elephant was commissioned in 1992 while I was living near Knoxville, TN. It’s mounted on a marble base.

The intricate texture was fun to make, and actually quite fast after so many hours modeling the elephants form. I can’t remember whether I’d modeled it in oil clay or wax, but I brushed clay slip over the whole sculpture. I then laid a piece of soft plastic wrap over the form and using a wooden knife, pressed the folds in the elephants skin into the clay through the plastic. This automatically rounded and softened the edges. All that was left to do was to remove the plastic and dust the clay with a bit of coarse dust.
