Hummel Master Sculptors

Logo GoodwillBuyer.com smallThe artists endowed with creating a three-dimensional figurine from the drawings of the late Maria Innocentia Hummel (M.I. Hummel) are largely responsible for the tremendous popularity and excitement that collectors have enjoyed for many generations.

Have you ever wondered who the master sculptor was that took the sketches and drawings to mold them into a clay figure? Here is a list of those master sculptors I could locate who have contributed to the creation of these beautiful renderings. The following Hummel numbers listed are not all of the figurines, only a few of the many that are available. Some of the Hum numbers show up more than once due to either a collaboration between the sculptors or a redesign of an older model by a later sculptor. This list will be updated as more information becomes available.
