Hand-Crafted Detail on Cenacle Altar

Recently, the hand carved detailing for the Cenacle commission was undertaken.  Many pieces of the custom Sacred Furnishings for the new chapel incorporate a hand gouged texturing around the upper trim and lower base of the piece.  This work of course is time consuming, however, it is very rewarding to watch the unique beauty of each piece unfold.  The nature of hand chisel and gouge work can be very contemplative, and is often a time of practicing mindfulness and prayerful reflection.  This hand-carved detailing is slowly adding a very organic look and feel to all of the furnishings.
