Welcome to the Official Progress Log of "A Glass Act!"

This was constructed for the It's Reigning Frogs project for the City of Toledo. A call was put out for local artists to design a frog based on the fiberglass molds that were made of two different models, the 5-Foot Leaping Frog and the 3-Foot Sitting Frog. "A Glass Act" was one of several entries submitted by Sandra Gulch, but the only one of them to be chosen. Sponsored by Pilkington, a fiberglass manufacturer, it employs the Sitting Frog, covered in hundreds of glass mosaic tiles, provided by Mountaintop Mosaics, including an estimated 150 24 karat gold plated tiles.
