Ore Gnome stamp mill

$145.99

The stamp mill is a sophisticated wooden machine that uses water to grind the laboriously mined ore. The Pochsteiger, our eleventh gnome from the ore gnome story, is very proud of his masterpiece. Together with the mountain carpenter and his friends he sawed and hammered many days and nights until everything ran smoothly. Well placed on a steep creek, it serves its purpose 24 hours a day. The rotating wheel drives the shaft, which lifts and drops the respective squared timber with the cams. In the box below is the ore, which is crushed by the blows.

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 stamp mill - 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.
