Roster Ornament with orange plumage
Rooster Ornament - an original handmade miniature. Straight from the artisans workshop – this is a handcrafted and unique piece of Erzgebirge folk art in its highest quality.
About the Maker: Ronald Graupner and his wife Kordula are based in a town at the southern end of the Erzgebirge Mountains in Germany. Their hometown is called Crottendorf. The Graupner's take great pride in sourcing sustainable harwoods such as maple, birch and cottonwood from the Erzgebrige region. They also use local spruce, meaning that many of their decorations are actually made from Christmas Trees!
Their pigments and paints are free of chemical solvents and toxins. Ronald has actually created his own unique dying process to ensure that the application of color enhances the natural grain of the wood.
