Savoir-Faire

Wood carving is a highly physical know-how which requires both patience and strength. Hand carved from one single piece of wood, the artisan uses his strength and firmly swings the adze downwards to chip off pieces of wood. This motion is repeated until the desired shaped is carved. After which, the wood pieces is then hand polished to create a smooth and sleek finish.
