Phoenix Crest Wall Sculpture
Kovler Gymnasium ,
University of Chicago Laboratory Schools
Indiana Limestone

This shield is 6'6" tall and 4'4" wide, carved in two panels of limestone. At the deepest point there is about 8" of relief. I was provided with a small graphic of the crest, and from that created a full sized image and developed the carving.

Signage, Address Stone and Crest Gallery

Custom stone signage allows you express the unique quality of a home, building, business, institution, or community. In designing and hand-carving these wall sculptures, it is necessary to consider how they will be placed and viewed. carved lettering on an address stone that is seen from 15 feet away requires a different touch than a logo that is viewed from 200 feet. A north-facing stone ornament requires special texturing and treatment so that it will have contrast and clarity despite lack of direct sunlight.
