Fred has been carving custom religious sculptures for over 20 years now and his passion for liturgical art can be seen in each of his works. Thanks to his sculpting abilities, his religious statues' faces express just about every feeling - pain, humility, sadness, or love - and when you look at his wood carvings of Jesus, you will feel His pain. Fred specializes in catholic statuary but also has an extensive experience in designing and carving ecclesiastical art suitable for any environment.
Fred' religious sculptures are made from different media including wood, resin, and bronze but wood is really his number one choice for church sculptures. His portfolio includes carved and customized catholic statues of many saints including sculptures of Jesus, Madonna, Madonna & Child, Mary, Holly Family, St. Josef, St. Michael, carved sculptures of angels, numerous religious relief carvings, and other liturgical art pieces. You can find Fred's customized religious statues in churches and other religious institutions all around North America.
If you would like to get custom designed religious statues of saints, original religious woodcarvings, or any other church sculptures for your sacred place, please feel free to contact us. You will be dealing directly with Hana, Fred's wife, and with Fred avoiding the middle man or re-seller. Your sculpture will be carved in North America by Fred. It will also be an original – not a copy machine reproduction.
Please note that we don't have inventory of religious sculptures for sale and don't make or sell reproductions of Fred's carvings. Each statue is custom designed original and is carved according to client's specifics. Also, please keep in mind that carving is time consuming process, the more intricate carving, the longer time it takes to complete. Large as well as small and complicated projects can take several months to complete.Please check information about commissioning a wood carving.
