Custom designed and hand carved religious statues and religious relief carvings

Majority of Fred’s work is for religious institutions. He found his niche in designing and carving religious sculptures, mostly catholic statuary.  He can design and create original  liturgical art pieces and  religious statues to suit any place of worship. His work includes resin, bronze, and wood statues of saints, carved processional crosses,  and religious relief wood carvings. He also offers church sculpture restorations.

Fred works closely  with Celeste Liturgical Fabric Art Studio for which he paints and  designs religious tapestries & hangings.
