The Nightingale, the Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweeper are already on the shelves of the museum shop in Odense and at rosendahl.com. They are now joined by Sandman, whom you will also find in your local design shop. Wearing a light blue nightshirt, dark blue pyjama trousers, slippers and a little hat, the Sandman stands happy and smiling with his two umbrellas.
The colours are tranquil and limited to cool shades of blue. Sandman has been turned in FSC® certified beech. He has been made by hand with the great precision and care that are the hallmarks of Kay Bojesen's wooden figurines.
The shape is based on the original Ole figurines from Kay Bojesen's archive – simple and minimalist, but full of life and soul – so that Ole is given a feeling of magic and adventure that reflects the spirit of Kay Bojesen and the storytelling he succeeded in creating in his imaginative figurines.

Trained as a silversmith at the Georg Jensen workshop, he designed several products in silver, such as cutlery and serving dishes, including his famous Grand Prix cutlery. Kay Bojesen worked with other materials as well and explored in particular the possibilities offered by wood.
