The man behind Emanuel Design is a self-taught woodworker. His name is Andreas Emanuel Söderlund and is in his 20's living his life together with his wife in Bergen, Norway. He's originally from Finland.
His interest for wood working started when he was five years old and got his first knife from his father. Since that day he have carved all kinds of stuff.
When it was time to go to trade school he chose to study house building like his father instead of fine woodworking but the interest for wood carving continued still.
-I enjoy working with my hands, always have! It gives me a lot of satisfaction to see the transformation from a piece of wood to a beautiful spoon or something, and I think that the people who purchase my products will feel the same satisfaction when using it when they know that it is handmade. - Andreas
"I've always loved to create things by hand. Gives me a lot of satisfaction and free therapy."
