Clambering Tree Frog on Bas Relief Stoneware Tile Plaque (LEO Design)

While the squirrels in the frigid Northern Hemisphere are snuggling in their nests, in the Southern Hemisphere, tree frogs are busily scampering in the trees, eating bugs and making the next generation of little climbers.  There are approximately 30 varieties of tree frog in the United States—and 600 species in Central and South America.  Worldwide, there are approximately 800 species, all related by the climbing structure of their feet.  The largest tree frog is about 5 inches long while the smallest comes-in at under one inch long.

This plaque captures a contented tree frog (is he smiling?) clambering-up an array of reeds. He is crafted of stoneware and glazed in aqua green. A wire on the back makes him easy to hang.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
