Goebel Hummel Miniatures
Degreed American artist Robert Olszewski discovered his love of miniatures after building a dollhouse for his daughter. In 1979 Olszewski was brought under exclusive contract with Goebel, then maker of the world famous M.I. Hummel figurines, and was co-founder of the Goebel Miniatures Studios. As a master artist from 1979 to 1994, Robert oversaw the development of the modeling and painting studios, and watched the company grow from a staff of four painters in 1979 to 65 painters in a studio numbering 95 personnel.
Exquisite detail defines Olszewski's work. Because each figurine is laboriously hand painted, there are no two alike! After leaving Goebel, Olszewski continued creating miniatures for the Walt Disney Company, for his own company (Storytime Miniatures and Luminiart), and currently creates the Gallery of Light boxes for Enesco.
