About Frogman

Westover Gallery are honoured to be awarded Platinum Status as an authorised dealer of Frogman Bronze sculptures in the UK. We're proud to represent all of the collection of bronze frogs by world acclaimed sculptor, Tim Cotterill 'The Frogman'.

Originally trained as an engineer, Leicester-born Tim Cotterill began his journey with no artistic training. Now, over twenty years later, Tim’s frogs are sold and recognised across the world.

Westover Gallery have been honoured with Platinum Gallery status alongside just one other gallery in the UK due to our wonderfully loyal and avid client base.

Made utilising the Lost Wax process from the Frogman foundry in LA, each frog has an enormous amount of time and effort put into it. Tim sketches his idea and creates it with a moulding material which is then made into a silicone mould and filled with wax. When the wax frog has set, it is dipped into a ceramic slurry then straight into sand which is then left to dry for 24 hours.

This process is repeated every day for a week until a thick enough layer of ceramic is built up around the outside. Once completed, the ceramic is fired and the wax melts out of a small hole leaving a hollow frog shell. Through this same hole, molten bronze is poured in at 2,000 degrees and left to cool and set which can take a number of weeks. The bare bronze frog is then ready to have its colours done!

Each frog edition has its own special patina which is created using chemicals whilst applying intense heat. So, although you may have a piece from a larger edition, no one else’s froggy will look the same as yours! They are all hand-finished, numbered limited edition sculptures which have been hand-engraved by Tim himself.

Some editions will be smaller than others, making them much more desirable for our collectors. Tim has also dabbled in elegant fish, astonishing bird sculptures and his beautiful annual flower releases. Some have also been lucky enough to indulge in his extremely rare stainless steel sculptures.
