Hobler Figuren

The company Hobler from Grünhainichen in the Ore Mountains is a good example for a manufacturer of Ore Mountain folk art who looks back on a long history already and yet keeps developing and enriches the world of woodcraft with their new fresh ideas.

The enterprise's beginnings can be traced back three generations, when Willi Tennstedt elaborately handcrafted beautiful children's toys out of wood. His son Gerhard together with his wife Ellen continued the tradition and created a large variety of children's toys and craftwork.

Today their grandson Dirk Hobler and his wife Romy Hobler-Kirsch design their modern figurines under the name “Hobler – Figuren mit Herz aus Grünhainichen” (figurines with heart from Grünhainichen). The old art of woodturning still is the basic of the witty miniatures while stylistic the Hoblers with their refreshing designs go new ways. The clever shaping of the wooden figurines gives them a special dynamic that contributes greatly to their humorous appeal.

Grünhainichen, where the workshop is domiciled, has a long handicraft tradition and as “Village of the Angels” a particular importance for Ore Mountain folk art. Hobler refers to that tradition, but they add a novelty to the variety of Ore Mountain angels: the Hobler angels are the first ones who have male colleagues as well.

Beside angels the Hobler family creates other humoristic product series as well.
As a playful addition to the droll angels comes the cheeky devil Gustav, that is also available in different versions.
The cheerful snowmen not only delight collectors, but also the “Verband der erzgebirgischen Kunsthandwerker” (Union of Ore Mountain Artisans), who awarded them with the prestigious prize for “Tradition und Form”.
