From the Archives: Drums & Dreadlocks

18 Feb

Marley was supposedly part of the Frogpond Symphony Orchestra but just didn’t quite fit in.  This gnome with his drum and dreadlocks marches to the beat of a different drummer.

Months before Marley was only just bits of clay glued together unfinished, lonely, and gathering dust in my apothecary cabinet.   Then someone sent me a souvenir keychain with a tiny drum and thought it would be nice for my “leftover” gnome.

See the fairy door behind Marley?  I made it months ago and never really found the ideal bell jar for it. So like Marley, the fairy door was just sitting on the shelf.

I decided to give Marley and the forgotten fairy door a new lease on life and gave them their very own bell jar. Because everybody, even gnomes and fairy doors, deserve a second chance.

    Marley is very, very cool…maybe he needs to start his own band?
