Each polygon is made distinct from the other through extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques, while the application of bold color adds vibrancy and alters our perception of dimension and light. Together, they form a touching scene of this iconic species as a mother bear introduces her cub to Canada’s Arctic waters; gracefully swimming out, the mother turns to face her young as he gingerly attempts his first few strokes.
The hard edges that are characteristic of this style lend themselves beautifully to recreating the Arctic ice above and below the water’s surface; yet, it is the application of rich, vibrant colors that brings a dynamic quality to the overall design, infusing it with depth and dimension through different shades of blues and whites which create a playful perception of shadow and light.
