Gnome - Squirrel Hunter Sam

Gnome - Squirrel Hunter Sam

$125.00Price

A true outdoorsman gnome with tree like hat, hand carved and glazed with two brown glazes; dark green shirt and turquoise pants; shiny brown boots with lace carved details; and his mighty squirrel trap in hand. He is unaware of course of the small grey, acorn munching squirrel on top of his hat! Extra details include arms, hands, ponytail in back and all the accessories listed above. He stands 11” tall with the squirrel.

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.
