Ignatius Taschner (b. Bad Kissingen, 9 April 1871; d. Mitterndorf, 25 Nov 1913) was a German sculptor, illustrator and designer. He studied from 1889 at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. He was appointed by Hans Poelzig in 1903 to teach at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Breslau (now Wroclaw). By 1905 he had established a studio in Berlin, where he worked mainly as an architectural sculptor for new buildings by Ludwig Hoffmann. Taschner used the mark showing a stork in a triangle.
