Ore Gnome with basket

As a wood gatherer, the charcoal burner Rudolph is our fourteenth gnome from our ore gnome story. He has to go into the forest with his wife Minna, to fetch sticks for his pile of charcoal. Only the thickest chunks are suitable for him and it has to be hardwood. Because he knows that this is the only way to make the good coal that they then need to melt the ore. Since the basket can’t be big enough, the rough guy is out and about every day and knows every corner of the forest. When his wife isn’t looking, he lights his pipe and sings his charcoal burner song. He uses the stick to support himself with the heavy load, even on narrow paths. The trees are close together and there are all kinds of natural materials on the path.

We hope you have a lot of fun with the little man, which we manufacture in small numbers in Aue, in the Ore Mountains. All incense smokers are made in many production steps such as sawing, grinding, turning, painting and gluing.

 

Ore Gnome with basket - Handmade by Drechselwerkstatt Uhlig, Germany

For many years, our family has been associated with the traditional art of turning and carving in the Ore Mountains. In 1990 we turned our hobby into a profession and founded our family business, which became a registered craft business in 1993. Just four years later, the old production facility had become too small. We moved to a new building and expanded the range of services.

Committed to tradition, we are inspired by our homeland, the beautiful Ore Mountains. This is how the idea of our gnomes came about, which is characterized by their special beard design made of natural fur. Therefore, each incense smoker is different and has a unique appearance.

We make our distinctive incense smokers from local woods such as pine, ash, and beech. By incorporating natural materials such as cones, branches, moss, berries and felt, we give our gnomes a traditional look. You can usually recognize the real Uhlig smoker gnomes by the special shape of their beards. We always try to preserve the natural structure of the wood, even using parts with a colored design.

We are also happy to fulfill your individual wishes. Take your time and experience a piece of unmistakable Erzgebirge tradition and craftsmanship.

The design of the natural materials used, such as stones, wood, beards, may differ in color, shape and size from the item photo. This is not a reason for complaint! When smoking with the incense candle, the beard at the mouth and nose will become discolored. This is in the nature of the incense smoker and cannot be prevented! Please push the beard out of the mouth hole before use so that a good draft is guaranteed.
