Les Hérissons Noirs – Behind the Scenes Walter Bosse Hedgehogs Photos

Walter Bosse Hedgehogs Noir

Thought we would share some experimental behind-the-scenes shots for the newly released Bosse hedgehogs, their letterpress certificates and the wooden box. We decided to see how a black backdrop looked so we thought we’d call the set Les Hérissons Noirs.

I think they came out looking pretty classy! We probably won’t be able to use them anywhere but they are here for you to enjoy. What do you think? Better than the white backdrop?

Introducing the Walter Bosse Master Collection

We were recently given a very generous donation of vintage original masters by Walter Bosse and Herta Baller. These include bronze sculptures and everyday objects used for casting which are about 20% larger than finished items cast from these masters.

All have been sitting unused since the 1950s and came from the original collection of the Bosse/Baller company in Austria. Most are rusty from having been left in their raw state but some were given a patina and polishing. Most are very rough and were never used in production. A few items are completely finished items whose masters were lost, but the finished item was kept for later casting.

Enjoy the images below and in the Virtual Museum as well!
