Custom Outdoor Religious Statues - Hand Carved, Marble

19 Oct 2012

Posted by Joseph Coupal

Egan’s Church Furnishings is your best and most complete solution for new, custom, hand-carved religious statues.

  1. Send us a picture, even a catalog photo, of what you want.
  2. We will consult with our studio in Italy. Then send you a quote for the desired size of the custom, hand carved marble statue you want.
  3. If you are pleased with initial design and the price, a 10% deposit is made and our artist in Italy begins sculpting a clay model of what the full round statue will look like.

Clay renditions are used so clients can ask for alterations, which can easily be done with the clay material before carving the actual marble statue.

After the clay model is reviewed and approved, we will send you a “rough cut” picture. Minor changes will be made at this stage if necessary.

We will then crate and ship your custom, hand-carved marble statues from Italy.

If your church, hospital, University or place of worship is in need of a new indoor or outdoor marble statue, contact Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations.

Custom Created Religious Statues for Your Church or Institution

Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations is your best and most complete solution for new custom designed religious statues.

Take a look at the photos of a new custom designed 72" St. Francis Xavier solid Carrara marble statue. This marble statue was commissioned and delivered to Laureate Clinic & Hospital in Tulsa, OK (a division of the St Francis Health Care System).
 
The Laureate Clinic & Hospital asked Egan’s to assist in creating a new outdoor marble statue of their patron saint, St Fancis Xavier.  They submitted a picture of St. Francis  from a catalog.  After consultation with our studio in Italy, Egan’s was able to quote the price for a 72" custom, hand carved marble statue.  

The hospital’s statue donor was pleased with initial design and the price we quoted.  After the hospital placed a 10% deposit, we had our artist in Italy sculpt a clay model of what the full round sculpture of St. Francis Xavier would look like. (Clay models are used so clients can ask for alterations, which can easily be done with the clay material before carving the actual marble).

After the clay model was reviewed and approved, we sent a “rough cut” picture to the customer. After a few minor changes were made, the final design of the St. Francis Xavier marble statue was commissioned and created.
 
A picture of the finished marble statue was emailed to The Laureate Clinic & Hospital prior to crating in Italy and shipping.  The statue now stands at the main entrance and greats all patients and family members as they come to the hospital for assistance.

If your church, hospital, University or place of worship is in need of marble, wood, or bronze statues, contact Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations.
