Hundelrut Studios

Here I am again, shamelessly promoting a friend’s business. It’s called Hundelrut Studios. I may have introduced you to these people before but it was quite a long time ago, I think.

Watch this little video (about 7 mins long) of Don Hundgen, co-proprietor of Hundelrut Studio along with his wife, Sarah Rutledge… also an artist. She makes the most gorgeous pottery!

A page about Hundelrut, with some fabulous photos of their works!

I first met Don and Sarah many years ago at a Christmas fair in West Newbury, Massachusetts. They live and work in Plymouth, New Hampshire, but they go all over to various fairs with their artwork. As soon as I stepped up to their table that year, I was hooked and was drawn right in to their world by Don and Sarah both, two extremely talented people. Over the years I’ve bought things from them like note cards, but one of my favorite things was a poster-sized black and white ink drawing of Merlin in his office. I started coloring in the poster with felt-tip pens. I really loved doing it and that started my love of “adult coloring books.” I want to get back into that. It’s so relaxing and is all the rage these days.

I am going back to finish watching the video above now and then get back to their Hundelrut Facebook Page where there is lots to see and learn.

The name “Hundelrut” was a combination of their two last names, Hundgen and Rutledge… if you hadn’t figured that out already.

I’ll be back again soon. Still sorting things out here at home with various changes in the works.

Happy November!

Cheers for the artists of the world,


I think I could turn and live awhile with the animals…

They are so placid and self-contained,

I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,

They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,

They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,

Not one is dissatisfied… not one is demented with the mania of owning things,

Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,

Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

    Such cute designs! Thanks for the link, Bex!

    I bought a coloring book a couple of months ago. I work on it now and then, though since coloring uses many of the same hand muscles as surfing/typing, I find it still puts some strain on my hands.

    I ordered some coring books and started one that was all mandelas. Very relaxing and a great change of pace from crocheting and knitting and taking care of life. I remember coloring a book in my 20s before I married. My mom thought it was interesting, but not right!

    Oh, Bex this is great. I love the shop. Wish I lived closer to it. My sister would love their things. They remind me also of things Reens would like. I like that frog!

    I have always wanted to do papier-m�ch�. A huge indoor totem pole. If I wasn’t so bloody uptight about life, money and had the energy to just be creative I would be so much more complete.

    My girlfriend just sent me a coloring book. I haven’t gotten around to doing any coloring though because there are a kazillion things that come first. But it’s nice to know I have it. Would be fun to do at the beach if I ever see one again!

    You are the second of my blogging buddies to get into coloring… she has ordered a bunch of coloring books.. my daughter likes to color, I can see how it could be relaxing!


  5. Fun stuff Bex! It looks like he is having a great time creating the characters, love the dragon!
