The fascination of the wood-carving

Norbert Vinatzer - The art of wood carving in Ortisei - Val Gardena

The company Norbert Vinatzer has been active for decades in the field of woodcarving and creates wooden artworks in finest handcraft

I was born in Ortisei, in the beautiful Val Gardena in the middle of the impressive South Tyrolean Dolomites, UNESCO’s World Heritage, where I also practice my work. As a descendant of the famous Vinatzer-dynasty, I inherited the talent of wood-carving and painting from my parents.

You can have a look at many of my latest creations of wood carved figures and sculptures on my new homepage, on the site "artworks".

I hope that my works can give you much joy and that you can get an insight in the woodcarving tradition of our valley.
