His head is a Cherry Pit; body, arms and legs are carved and painted chopsticks; he sports a sou’wester made of Fimo; and his slicker was a rubber glove fingertip…

  1. From all angles, the fisherman looks very male, a cheery mate. What fun to have such a hearty soul around the QH cupboard.

  2. The Fisherman is hilarious!! I can’t look at him without grinning. And his sou’wester is a fingertip from a glove?? oh that is even more fantastic. Thanks to the “favorite photographer” for some wonderful photos. I am still grinning!

  3. oh and just in case you thought I was being too flippant..I also think he is VERY well done. Great job of carving the little bitty guy.

  4. Love him! Thanks for explaining how he was made. Now I will save my yellow rubber gloves that always seem to get microscopic holes in them. “Favorite photographer” does an amazing job. It’s very hard to capture the itty-bittys.

  5. Thank you for your introduction to cherry pit fisherman doll! He is a quite a character……and a fun addition to the Hitty family! Happy fishing!

  6. This is really very humorous – So well done. Now the Quimper Hittys have their own fisherman. Beautifully carved and dressed.

  7. He is a charming little fellow. Like many fisherman he can be found in the beatiful light of early morning thereby making photography much easier. At least if the photographer is an early riser.
