Wood sculptures by Giuseppe Rumerio

Posted By on March 19, 2011

Giuseppe RumerioThese sculptures are carved by Giuseppe Rumerio from Ortisei, Val Gardena, Italy.

Giuseppe Rumerio stands out from many gifted carvers as one of the world’s greatest animal sculptor working in wood.

Giuseppe started carving at the age of 14 when he became an apprentice carver. Now, he is a master-carver whose works are awarded the UNIKA marque to show that they have been carved solely by hand.

Giuseppe’s favorite medium for carving is pine wood , though he pronounces almost each wood as ideal to carve.

Giuseppe’s carvings all share a dynamic, animated quality that demonstrates his ability to harness the characteristics of his subject.

The most important aspect for him is the authenticity of the hand carving:

“Now the carvers are not so much anymore because sculptures can also be carved by machine, but this is an industrial work, not intricate like mine.”
