Ernst Gamperl

After graduating from a cabinet making apprenticeship Gamperl went on to complete a master in woodturning and has established studios in both Germany and Italy. Carving a distinct niche with his unique appreciation for wood has proliferated his work across Europe, Asia, and America.

Ernst Gamperl was awarded the LOEWE Craft Prize 2017. His work ‘Tree of Life 2’ was hewn from a massive 300-year- old oak uprooted during a storm. Replete with natural imperfections, these tributes eternalise the story of a fallen tree.
