Our Atelier specializes in handcrafted carvings, including statues, reliefs and altars as well as paintings. Our main material is wood, but we also work with stone and marble. While a handful of famous artists from the valley do the carvings, my mother, Eva Perathoner, paints and meticulously polishes the statues with an agate stone. This particular procedure make the statues shiny and allows the colour to absorb into the wood ensuring the colour lasts longer, and it is a technique that is unique to our art pieces (other artists generally use varnish).

Our statues can be seen all over Europe, especially in churches in Germany, Hungary, Austria and Italy. We have been working with several churches in the United States too.
