I’m Bernat Mercader and I’m from Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain. I began my woodcarving journey on April 2016 when I started attending to ‘TALLAMADERA’ a wood carving workshop based in Ripollet, 20 min from Barcelona. There, Jordan taught me both relief carving and chip carving techniques, to understand the wood grain and how to use and sharpen the tools.
I soon started to create carvings on my own from jewelry to candleholders, decorative pieces and also trophies for Hip Hop & Breaking events. As of now I’m adventuring to create pieces on a bigger scale such as Wall Art and curious to find connections to collaborate and create with other artists.
I know very little about everything that surrounds wood carving and woodworking and I’m looking forward to find opportunities to learn new ways to work with wood and improve my knowledge for this craft.
