This powder horn was made for Jason Schneider of Rice Muzzle Loading Barrel Company. Jason is a good friend and makes both rifled and smooth bore barrels of the highest quality. I was honored to have the opportunity to build this horn for him. I would like to give a special “Thank You” to John Proud, who guided me in selecting the raw horn for this project and to Art DeCamp, who’s book Pennsylvania “Horns of the Trade” Screw-tip Powder Horns and their Architectureproved an invaluable resource.
When Robert Weil started collecting images for the Contemporary Makers book in 1973 the challenge to record contemporary gun work was daunting. Gathering material was difficult and time consuming. Few makers thought that there was any value in published documentation of their work. Electronic publishing has changed all that. Having a website or having one's work available to view on the internet is becoming a necessity. In spite of all the potential to finally have a true overview of what's being produced by the artists of today, a great deal of work still remains covered up and basically unknown. Our role is to make an effort to document some portion of what’s going on today. To comment on the established makers and to uncover the unknown. We welcome your comments and suggestions and look to you our readers to make us aware of the talented makers out there. Art and Jan Riser Robert Weil and The Makers
