The Making of Steinbach Nutcrackers
Steinbach nutcrackers are each produced using up to 130 separate procedures. Genuine hardwood is cut and shaped into specific sizes and parts. The wood is then turned by hand, using an ancient process that creates smooth, clean surfaces. The pieces are then lathed and polished and drilled before they are turned over to experienced craftsmen who prime and spray them repeatedly, alternating the process with drying to produce an even tone. Carving comes next; wood-carving artisans use knives and finely-honed skill to add personality and detail to the pieces. Finally, the painters take over; trained German artists paint these nutcrackers free-hand, allowing each color to dry before the next is applied. The final result is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind product that's a must-have for collectors and art lovers alike.
