our new design for 2003. He is called “Al” and is one of a limited
edition of 99 bronze sculptured alligator coffee tables.
After many months of “el lagerto” Spanish for “the lizard”, lurking
in the shallows of the design studio he is ready to be released
into the wild!
“Al” is cast using the traditional “lost wax” method. The bronze
finish and patina are lovingly completed by craftsmen skilled in
their art. The glass top will be a rectangle measuring 5’ x 3’ and
made of 12mm (“) thick toughened glass with finished bevelled edges,
conforming to British standard BS 6206.
A quite stunning piece measuring 60” long and standing 18” high,
he creates a wonderful focal point in any room. Al peeks through
the glass table top with only his eyes,snout, back and top of his
tail above the water.
He dosen’t eat much and is easily cared for requiring only occasional
As with all our bronze sculptured coffee tables, once all Limited Edition
are gone they’re gone; and, as all our alligators come with a certificate
of authenticity and are signed by the artist Mark Stoddart,they
are sure to become valuable collector’s items.
The photographs below show the stages involved in the design process.
This begins with Mark sketching a design concept and when he feels
he’s captured the subject, a quarter scale model alligator is made
clay sculpture is then carved in full size from which the moulds
are made. When Mark feels the design is ready the sculpture can
then be produced.
