Need to rent a giant nativity?

Leave a comment


It is that time of the year where we are renting our giant nativity for the Christmas period. Custom hand carved in wood for the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi this more than 4 meter high nativity is ready to make its appearance again. Due to the extensive treatment with bee wax the artwork can be exhibited outside regardless of the weather conditions. Give me a shout if you are interested.


Station of the Cross

This is a relief custom woodcarving of the Station of the Cross using a more modern approach. The sculpture has been primed and then hand painted with natural colors and no varnish. We use an agate stone to polish the piece and make sure the color absorbs into the wood.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Custom hand carved statues of St. Joseph and St. Helena.

Wait! Who is that little bugger sitting next to the woodcarvings?

Christmas Nativities

Leave a comment


Ever since we were kids, nativities have always played a great part in our lives, not only because our parents and their parents before them made them, but also because they were ever present next to Christmas tree. How are you getting ready for the holidays? Do you have similar traditions and if so, have they changed over the years?

What color is a marmot?

I am seeing marmots everywhere. They are often seen as the rats of the mountains but I find them adorable and they always live in groups and big families where everyone has a specific role. Sometimes they even come in different colors…
