Welcome Gnome - SWEET WILLIAM (with WELCOME)
Steel, Naturally-acquired Rust Patina, Hand-brushed Penetrol oil.

Originally designed for the garden, my friendly sculptural figures have also wandered into the home to welcome visitors or hold open a door.  I regard these whimsical, full rounded figures as my 'Welcome Gnomes', and this one in particular is named SWEET WILLIAM.

Handsomely constructed from heavy steel plate.  A fitting accent for the garden, home entrance, foyer, mantle, or used as a door stop, your fun-loving 'Welcome Gnome' will delight everyone!

DIMENSIONS:
16"h x 17"w x 6"d

CERTIFICATION OF AUTHENTICITY:
Every piece of art is signed by me.

FABRICATION PROCESS:
I start out by hand-cutting individual pieces from heavy 1/8" steel plate using my plasma cutter.  Then I grind the rough edges and assemble the pieces together using my tig welder.  The fabricated piece is then cleaned with salt & vinegar to start the metal oxidation process, and then placed outside exposed to the elements to develop its unique, naturally-acquired rust patina.  After several days of oxidation, I wash and clean the piece with water, let it dry, and then hand-brush two coats of Penetrol - a metal sealing oil that dries hard to a rich glossy finish.

NOTEWORTHY:
Each piece has its own rust patina character so no two items will be exactly alike.  If left outside exposed to the elements, this piece will age with time.  If one desires, Penetrol oil can be applied once a year to maintain the lustre appearance.

SPECIAL ORDERS:
In place of the 'Welcome' message - Please ask me about personalizing this item - like your name, or a special message (1-2 lines only - limited space for lettering).  This would be a special order request, but offered at no additional cost.  Please allow 10 - 14 days for fabrication.

OTHER VARIATIONS:
I also make SWEET WILLIAM without the 'Welcome' message on the waist belt - This is the plain version also offered on this website at a slightly lower price.  Go to SWEET WILLIAM - without lettering
