Ernst Gamperl 63/2019/120, 2020
Unique. Master craftsman Ernst Gamperl has revolutionised the practice of woodturning by developing entirely new modes of working that push it to its technical limits. The artist principally uses European Oak tree and carefully selects his immense logs from sustainable sources – either from trees that could not stand their ground against the wind or were felled due to decay. Ernst won the ﬁrst Loewe Craft Prize in 2017 in recognition of his craftsmanship. His work is part of many international collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, UK; Fond National d’art Contemporain France; and the Museé des Arts Décoratifs de la Ville de Lausanne, Switzerland.
