Tim, born in Leicester, England now creates these stunning sculptures from his California based studio. Following his engineering education, Tim, who is also known as The Frogman, has always been intrigued with metalworking and has devoted himself solely to the creation of his unique bronze sculptures.

Fascinated by frogs and birds during his childhood adventures into the English woods, Tim Cotterill had no idea he would someday be known as the World Famous Frogman. The sculptor uses a process called the lost wax technique invented by the Egyptians thousands of years ago.

Tim Cotterill’s bronze frog sculptures capture the whimsical character, the jewel-like quality and the pure JOY of these beautiful little creatures. “Through the centuries and throughout the world, frogs have symbolized many things – Good Luck, Royalty, Fertility, Magic Potions, Energy, Charm. In today’s fast world, life sometimes becomes complicated and stressful. As you can see, my art is not. It’s Elegant, Stylish, Whimsical, Unique and pure FUN! As children we were excited to see our first frogs. They made us laugh when they jumped our way! We were curious about the strange way they felt; the odd way they moved and their simple contented look. I used to watch frogs at my pond in England, noting how each one had its own colour markings, character and even personality.”
