Our family-run art studio is located in Ortisei, a small village in the Dolomites, which is a well known mountain range in the Northern part of Italy. In this region, called Val Gardena, the tradition of woodcarving dates back to the 16th century! This art has been passed on from father to son for many generations and still is the main industry of the valley. A handful of master artisans who work for us handcarve the statues using the same tools as 400 years ago: the chisel and the wooden hammer.
We are true to our roots, our culture, our believe in humanity and god, with nothing but our hands to create art, for that is what we stand for and crave.
