Georg Demetz is passionate about an art that his family has pursued for four generations: after studying sculpture at the Art Institute of Ortisei, he practised with different masters to achieve the title of master sculptor in 1987 and work in his own workshop in Ortisei.

All these unique pieces are made entirely by hand.
