    Walter Bosse (November 13, 1904–December 13, 1979) was a Viennese artist, designer, ceramist, potter, metalworker, and craftsman noted for his modernist bronzes, animal figurines and grotesques.

    Bosse studied ceramics under Michael Powolny and was given the opportunity to sell his work at the Wiener Werkstätte by Josef Hoffmann, who became his mentor.

    This example is 7 inches tall, marked "Austria". It is made of a brick red clay or terra cotta and covered with polychrome glazes. It is likely from his studio in Kufstein, circa 1933-37.

      About a year ago I decided to make him MORE scary and I named him "Ice Scream":
