What is a Whopper Gobb©?


Whopper Gobbs© are characters created from time washed pieces of driftwood that have survived the mighty elements of Lake Erie. They are made from unusual shapes of driftwood - some even pulled from the embers of a bonfire. They've journeyed back to shore in search of a new life of mirth. Whether dancing and singing the day away, or roaming the village, Whopper Gobbs© provide plenty of glee for all to see, that's if you know where to look!! They're difficult to spot 'cause they hang in their clough in the Village of Smirch at Van Buren Point.


All pieces were selected for their unusual shapes - some hand painted, some stained, some with teeth, eyes and legs. Vintage buttons and zippers are often used, as well as 'found' things such as: metal washers, pop can tops, fiber from sisal ropes, pine needles, plastic, birch bark, mesh from produce bags and other items. All driftwood has been cleaned, dried, stabilized and hand waxed or varnished for durability and preservation.
