What Kind Of Hippo Shopper Are You?

Holiday Hippo Ornament


Sold Out

This charming hippo ornament is hand cast of resin from an original sculpture by artist Bert Anderson. From his expressive face to his dangling feet, he'll be a favored ornament for years to come.


Before there can be a figurine or ornament, there must first be an idea. Bert gets his ideas from all over. Memories from childhood or a face in the crowd can spark an idea. I never start with a finished image in mind, Bert explains. I like to let the clay have a say in what the final piece will look like. Sometimes the best ideas seem to jump out of the clay as Im working. Im always adding things and taking them away, trying different looks until Im satisfied with the results. Its my hope that this method of sculpting gives a feeling of spontaneity to the piece.
