Rolf Taraldset

Rolf Taraldset was born in Hornindal, Nordfjord, in western Norway, and continues to live and work there. His father, Bjarne, was a professional woodcarver and, at the age of five, Rolf carved his first cuts in wood. Rolf worked with his father for three years before taking his examination in woodcarving at Hjerleid School at Dovre in 1976. He taught his first woodcarving class at Dovre and first taught at Vesterheim in 1977. Rolf carves different classic styles, pictures in relief, and many other techniques.
