BULL & STEIN unique handmade fruit sculptures BULL & STEIN, a Brazilian-German collaboration, was founded in São Paulo by Cynthia Stein and Marcus Bull in 2000. The company has been celebrating a decade of business success in manufacturing and distribution of premium quality ceramic sculptures worldwide. Shortly after BULL & STEIN´s global launch, the famous Brazilian artist and designer Lisa Pappon joined the company and developed her extravagant collection of ceramic apple sculptures exclusively for BULL & STEIN. The Brazilian-born founder Marcus Bull then moved the company‘s headquarters to Germany, where Marcus had been working as Director of Bildhauerwerkstatt Berlin, a world famous sculpture workshop in Berlin. Marcus‘s love and passion for art and sculpture is perfectly matched with Lisa Pappon‘s eternal quest for new forms, techniques and finishes. Soon after the introduction, the creative team of BULL & STEIN has successfully introduced an exotic and outstanding collection of sculpture fruit to world markets. BULL & STEIN is focused on the delivery of outstanding concepts with the world‘s most famous international decorators, architects and artists. Today BULL & STEIN manufactures its unique handcrafted apple sculptures in Europe and Asia. BULL & STEIN is a registered trade mark and only original sculptures of the company bear the unique BULL & STEIN seal of origin.
