he was once a block of wood … which makes sense … simple, earthy gnomes like nothing better than their woodland homes …
he started out on my workbench during December’s holiday rush
… but he is not one to be hurried … a patient fellow … he was cut from lovely, native hardwoods that were his home …
he was shaped and carved and sanded smooth with care by hand
Polished smoothed and finished with a hand-rubbed natural finish.
He is what he should be … a little wooden gnome that loves to wander in the quiet places.
He at last made his way to my Prettydreamer late this January. You can find him here along with the carved woodland village that is in process.
