A gar-gopher! Now that's something you don't see every day! Sure, he has a fierce scowl, but he'll bring a smile to your face every time you look at him. Let other gargoyles have their castles and cathedrals. This little guy is more at home with bookshelves and desk tops.
Though tiny in stature, the Chester gargoyle has all the courage you could ask for. At 2 1/2" tall, he's just the right size for keeping you company at home or at work. Made of interior grade plaster, for indoor use only.
Can I coat this to make it weather-proof? As tempting as it is to use Chester outside, we really don't recommend it for outdoor use. The materials simply aren't able to hold up to constant exposure to wind and weather, even with the most careful application of clear-coat or sealant. Please plan on enjoying this small sculpture inside your home.
Who is the artist? The Chester Gargoyle Statue was created by Jay Hungate. When designing a new sculpture, Jay begins by working with plasticine clay to create the original. When he is happy with his progress, Jay makes a single-use mold and casts the piece in hard plaster. Once that is done, he uses the piaster model to carve additional details, refining and enhancing with every step. Next, he takes the new plaster model, and uses it to make a durable rubber mold, with which to cast finely detailed reproductions of the original. And finally, each piece is hand-finished and painted for the crucial finishing touches.
