When it comes to creating home beach decor the line of dolphin figurines by John Perry are guaranteed to provide a look and feeling of being at the beach. Originally all figurines by John Perry were the natural White color Pellucida Dolphins on uniquely individual burled wood bases. This combination proved a winner since it combined the latest in resin compounds called Pellucida for dolphins against the natural look of the burled wood makes a perfect combination for beach home decor. Recently with concern for the environment with regard to the wood used in the Dolphin Figurines John Perry began making his bases out of Pellucida. The Dolphins on Wave Figurine by John Perry and the Dolphin Pod on Wave Figurine by John Perry shown above left both show this new construction. Another progression has the Pellucida Dolphin Figurines themselves. Displayed historically in their natural white color the Pellucida Dolphins now are available with airbrushing. This airbrushing provides a light bluish gray natural look to the dolphins, but more importantly it allows more flexibility for choices when selecting a John Perry Dolphin Figurine. Three beautiful examples of the new airbrushing technique include the Dolphin Figurine on Burled Wood by John Perry, the Dolphin Figurine Adult Baby on burled wood by John Perry and the Dolphin Figurine Small Pair by John Perry shown middle and bottom left. In comparing the original style with the burled wood base versus the newer style with the Pellucida base it is hard to beat the natural unique one of a kind look of the burled wood base. With each of these the burled wood base actually attracts more detailed attention than the dolphin figurine. It is as if the dolphin figurine draws you in and the unique burled wood base holds your fascination and attention. With the new Pellucida base which are universal and not unique your attention is focused on the dolphins. Unfortunately the warm and cozy feeling produced by the burled wood is lost with the new Pellucida Base. On the plus side the new Pellucida Base Dolphin Figurines by John Perry seem to possess a greater feeling of action, excitement and definitely would be preferable in a modern beach home decor challenge. Each style has it’s advantages and drawbacks but when it comes to creating a beach home decor theme for your room or house it would be mistake not to include the Dolphin Figurines by John Perry in your presentation. The John Perry Dolphin Figurines are also create perfect decor the office, travel agencies, beach theme parties, restaurant decor and anywhere dolphin figurines transport you back to those lazy Summer days lounging at the beach.
