Ostheimer Bernese Mountain Dog

Ostheimer is a German company known for creating unique and beautifully crafted wooden figures. What sets Ostheimer apart is their traditional and meticulous approach to handcrafting each wooden figure. Here's an overview of their process:

  1. Template Transfer: Each figure's design template is transferred onto a piece of maple wood.

  2. Hand Sawing: Skilled artisans then carefully saw out the wooden figure by hand, following the template's outline.

  3. Carving: After the initial cutting, each figure undergoes Ostheimer's characteristic carving process. This carving likely includes shaping and detailing to give the figure its distinct appearance.

  4. Sanding: The wooden figures are sanded to ensure they have a smooth and polished finish, making them safe for children to handle.

  5. Hand Painting: Artisans hand-paint each figure with vibrant colors, adding unique touches and details to bring the figures to life.

  6. Protective Organic Seed Oil: To preserve the wood and enhance its natural beauty, the figures are dipped in a protective organic seed oil. This oil not only protects the wood but also adds a subtle sheen to the finished product.

Throughout each stage of production, skilled craftsmen and craftswomen play a pivotal role in ensuring the quality and beauty of Ostheimer wooden figures. The presence of human hands and their attention to detail is a hallmark of these handcrafted creations.

What makes Ostheimer figures particularly special is their open-ended design. They are intentionally made to stimulate a child's imagination rather than imposing a fixed concept or story. The simplicity in form and colors encourages children to explore and create their own narratives, allowing for endless imaginative play.

These figures are made in Germany from maple wood and are typically around 7 cm high. Their unique quality and aesthetic appeal have made them a favorite among families and admirers of fine craftsmanship.
