|Original frog eggs for molds|
Sprig molds have been used to decorate clay objects for thousands of years. In that tradition, we have made several plaster molds to aid in the decorating of the tile panels for the bridge. The process starts by forming a object out of wet clay or plasticine.

We then cast plaster molds of these objects. Once the plaster is dry the original object is removed leaving a void in the shape of the original object.
