This fellow insists that he was not named for Fig Newton, but rather for Sir Isaac Newton. He points to his English coin to substantiate his claim, as well as the three apple seeds, which popped out of the apple that hit Sir Isaac on the head.

Newt is a bit under 6 inches, is holding a fig newton and sitting on a stack of them. He is edition #21, made in 1984 and retired in 1992.

Dr. Clark hand sculpts each gnome from clay, the figure is then fired and a mold is made. The figures are then hand cast using a special resin that includes crushed pecan shells, and wood chips. Each is then hand-painted, hand-stained, and hand-lacquered.

Please convo me if you have any questions.

My parents were huge fans, attending almost every signing when Dr. Clark was in state for years. I have inherited several hundred gnomes, some of which are duplicates in my own small collection. All of these guys that I am listing are in mint condition. If you are looking for one in particular please convo me.
