Article on Duff Tweed - New Additions: Happy Golfer and The Cheater

Hello again.  Hope you enjoyed the first posting of the Duff Tweed carvings collection.  I received some nice  feedback from several of you.  Thank you kindly for your comments. 

Today I have just a few new items to share.  When I purchased the Slaughterhouse Four, I was fortunate enough to receive an article that accompanied the four pieces.  The article is continued on a separate page, so I have added both pages below.
As you can see in the pictures above, He's working on the Slaughterhouse Four.

...and below is the article continued...
The best part of this article is Duff's humility.  He calls himself an artisan vs. an artist stating he's not good enough to be an artist.  What do you think?  How many of us could carve this well?  Duff, you're an artist!

If you read my first post, you may recall I was waiting to hear back from a person who had two Duff Tweed golf related carvings.  I had posted "The Happy Golfer" in the April 6th post after capturing the picture online.  Well, 11 days later I now own that exact carving which I received with a limited edition Duff Tweed carving known as "The Cheater".

This guy really does look happy!

                                  

I was extremely fortunate to have stumbled upon "The Cheater".  Not only is it a limited edition Duff Tweed carving (number 7 of 100 total), but the background is completely different from any other Duff Tweed carving I have seen.  The background is a compilation of the same golf score card in which the players were Mark Deception and John Gullible.

The Cheater also had a different frame (not pictured) and an attached plate displaying the name of the piece, that it is a limited edition and that it was number 7 of 100.  See plate below.


That's it for now.  As always, I welcome your comments, pictures from your Duff Tweed collection and your Duffy stories.  All the best! -Joe

    HI DADDY. THE CARVINGS ARE SO COOL. I LOVE THE CHEATER. WHAT MAKES IT SO UNIQUE IS THAT THERE ARE SCORE CARDS IN THE BACKROUND. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
