Freida Warther

Back in April of this year I visited the Warther Museum in Dover,Ohio. The focus of the museum was Ernest “Mooney” Warther’s amazing hand carved trains and tools but also there is his wife Freida’s button collection. There are more than 70,000 of them on display in patterns lining the ceiling and every wall in her “button house” (50,000 of them being unique) and it’s pretty amazing.
If you ever get the chance to visit the museum I highly recommend it. There’s a tree made of pliers!!!

    Wow! The museum sounds interesting and, as always, your work is great. But I wonder how long it took you to draw it. All the details! It looks like you drew 50,000 unique buttons all by yourself.
