Gnome- Butterfly Collector Burt
Busy Burt is ready to go out and collect butterflies. He has his net in hand, and is wearing his favorite turquoise straw sun hat, bright purple pants, dark green shirt, shiny black shoes, and hair tied in a ponytail in back. He is joyfully unaware of the three blue butterflies on his hat! He stands 10” tall. Suitable for indoor or outdoor decoration, but NOT in freezing temperatures.
My gnomes start on the wheel where their body-hat form is created in a random and free flop at the end of lifting the clay into a tall neck “vase” shape. Hat rims and all detail features are added and carved by hand. The gnome’s individual character is organically created during this process with no prior planning. Each detail is then hand painted with cone 6 glazes. Each gnome is kiln fired twice. Prices vary depending on the amount of details.
