Masterpiece of expert wood turning

How the deciduous tree gets its leaves

The deciduous tree has had a permanent place in our collection for many years. It forms, for example, the centerpiece of the “Children’s Procession” music box. The age-old form of the 15-centimeter-high tree gives a hint of the high level of craftsmanship required to turn it on the lathe. It takes years of experience and exceptional technical expertise to give to a rotating piece of wood this most unusual shape. It also requires flair and a feel for form.

This is the reason why in December 2018 the German Commission for UNESCO rightly added the art of wood turning to Germany’s nationwide inventory of intangible cultural heritage. In an exclusive video we show you how the delicate foliage of our deciduous tree is created through skillful turning on the lathe. You will be amazed!
