Wrigley and The Bean



Photo by Dana Lusher.

Wrigley and The Bean is the result of a modelling demonstration I did in Chicago at the annual reunion of Hippolotofus, an international group of hippo lovers and collectors. An enthusiastic audience watched me modelling them and then in the evening the piece was sold at auction and raised 600$ for the protection of wild hippos on the Congolese side of Lake Edward in Africa :dance: Another member of the group who has a kiln carefully took it home with her as her hand baggage and will biscuit fire it and send it to the winner of the auction.

I took another finished piece to Chicago with me for the raffle [link] and between the raffle and the auction we raised 1800$ for wild hippo protection :dance: A good way of using my talent to persuade others to give their money to a worthwhile cause.

:bulletpurple: More hippos can be seen in my website gallery [link] :bulletpurple:
:bulletblue: or you could see if I have any hippos for sale [link] :bulletblue:
