We hope you will browse through the pictures of our work shown here and let us know what you think. These are only a few examples of the many things we have made. We will be updating our pictures from time to time. We are always coming up with new ideas and don't usually do the same thing twice.
We are located in Tampa Bay , Florida and find it easier to work with churches in Florida and nearby states but anything is possible. If your church is building or renovating we would be happy to discuss some of the possibilities with you. We like to get to know our clients before coming up with a design.
We like to create statues with a human feeling and to come up with designs that are fresh and contemporary. We make life sized statues in wood for indoors and in epoxy/fiberglass or bronze for outdoors.
Each sculpture or piece of furniture is unique. For this reason we cannot give a price until we determine what will be appropriate for a particular site. We usually send prospective clients pictures of our work and get feedback as to their likes and dislikes. We visit the church or see pictures of the proposed site. We then make a proposal that includes sketches, price and a sample of the wood. The next step is a contract, down payment and delivery date.
We make carved or cast Statues and Reliefs, Furniture, Wall Crosses, Processional Crosses and many other things."
We hope you will visit our site now and then to see our new work.
Please send us an E-mail if you have any questions or would like to discuss Liturgical Art.
