Samuel Kammerer, the master-carver in his workshop.
Through my father who was a carpenter, my passion for wood already started at an early age. From 1980-1983 I was an apprentice in woodcarving and then became a certified woodcarver. Finally I visited the master-carver school in Freiburg and in 1989 I successfully obtained my master degree in woodcarving. Now I do my best to cultivate the tradition of old wood-carving techniques in my own workshop in Nussbach.
“Woodcarving, even today, is still done by hand. Starting from:
- selecting and carefully drying maple or linden wood
- designing the individual carvings
- creating moulds
- the actual carving of the sculpture
- up to the finishing and hand painting of the figures
craftsmanship by master’s hand is guaranteed at Sam Kammerer’s workshop.”
