People have always felt the need to decorate spaces with whatever materials, however basic, they have within reach. Traditional craftsmanship has formed part of European culture for thousands of years, giving rise to classic figures which have accompanied us throughout history and wood has formed an indispensable part of this legendary tradition.

Art for all

The traditional way of working with wood is through carving. Wood carving is a slow and gentle art which requires a lot of skill, an ability which has lasted right up until now thanks to the effort of craftsman who have transmitted their art from generation to generation. Although there are different ways of fashioning wood, the easiest requires a sharp knife, a chisel and a sander to create authentic miniature gems.

Patience is your ally

Wood carving is a costly and time-consuming task which requires a lot of tenacity. You need a tranquil environment in which to work and, above all, great attention to detail. Carving wood is not a simple activity but it can be gratifying for those who do it. Starting with something simple and setting yourself achievable goals can serve to introduce any beginner to this art.

Linking tradition and modernity

Even though decorating a house with wooden sculptures may seem a little outdated, in reality, when used well, it can serve as a link between tradition and modernity. Wood transforms every corner of your house into a peaceful area which can help you be in tune with your natural setting. Carved wooden triptychs, small ornamental figures or toys, wood can become anything you want. Open your doors to it.
