Meet the Artists

David Critchfield studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts and for the past 15 years has been the owner of the "Bit o' Country" store in Saratoga, California. Vic Fortunato studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and has been a master sculptor for the past 20 years.

Both David and Vic have been creating miniatures and sculpture since childhood. David and Vic teamed up their creative genius to create these odd and wonderful figures 6 years ago. The artists visualize the concept and use paper mache as their medium of expression. Poliwoggs are molded from original paper mache pieces. Each extraordinary piece is true to the original.

This style of American Primitive is based upon what the artist knew rather than what he saw. This sculpture represents a direct and unpretentious social history of our time. Poliwogg creators David Critchfield and Vic Fortunato appreciate folk art for its distinctive style, in which they feel a kinship with their own work.

Poliwoggs are quickly becoming a modern day Early American Collectible. Poliwoggs are crafted to look as aged and antique as the folk art that inspired them. Poliwoggs have been written about in the "Fabulous Finds" section of Country Collectibles and the "New and Noteworthy" section of Country Business.
