Over the years Bastian has produced many primitive carvings reflecting his Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Some of his work is strongly inspired by Wilhelm Schimmel (circa 1890), best known for his eagles and parrots. On occasion, Schimmel carved other creatures; one of note was a small tiger about 6 inches long. This “Tyger” is in a local collection and was loaned to Bastian for his study and authentic reproduction. During the summer of 1988, Bastian, thankful for the loan, reproduced a few examples for the Breininger Pottery Show. They were complete with the green thumb and forefinger print on the body, just like Schimmel’s original!
