Tim “Frogman” Cotterill grew up playing in the English countryside, where he would often spot a frog or two. When asked about his encounters with the amphibians, he says, “They are fun little creatures. They move funny, they act funny, they feel funny.” His deep fondness for the frogs is reminiscent of a childhood spent in the lap of nature.
Meet Twister, the exuberant frog who enjoys basking in the warm sunshine by a creek. When he’s not chasing winged insects for grub, he enjoys hopping about the cool waters of his home. Frogman goes in with a mesmerizing speckled sap green patina. Once polished to perfection, the patina’s finish takes on a lovely textural depth. Twister is a must-have piece that promises to light up any corner of a room.
