Carving a wall art piece with Bern Mercader

Comments Comments

It's only three years since Bern Mercader started attending woodcarving classes near Barcelona in Spain where he hails from. However woodcarving is now a craft and an art which consumes his life as creates a range of objects and wall art, and seeks to upscale his work by collaborating with other artists.

Bern adapts traditional relief and chipcarving methods into his patterns and embellishments of his own design, and documents these in his social media and video offerings. In the example below, Bern takes us through the layout and carving of a piece which can be wall mounted. And how well does the basswood he's using carve?!
