Hand Carved Marble Religious Statues

20 Nov 2012

Posted by Joseph Coupal

Egan’s Church Furnishings was engaged by St. Charles Borromeo Church in Meredith, NH to draw and carve a marble statue of St. Charles Borromeo as he looked in real life. St. Charles Borremeo, also known as San Carlos Borromeo, pictured here, is being carved in solid Carrara marble, using the same marble quarries used by famous sculptors for hundreds of years in Carrara, Italy.   

One of the artists from Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations sketched a design of San Carlos Borromeo emphasizing his distinct Roman facial features.  Small details like the lace garments were incorporated in the drawing as requested by the donor and Pastor.  Ten weeks ago a final drawing was approved and sent to our artist in Italy.

The donor and Pastor have been kept abreast of each stage of the process including review and approval of the final drawing; review and approval of the pictures of the rough cut and final approval of the completed marble statue prior to crating and shipping.  St. Charles Borromeo Church is expecting delivery of their new hand carved religious statue by mid December 2012.

Call Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations for competitively priced, custom carved, marble and wood religious statues, carved by generations of the finest Italian religious sculptors in the world.

Happy Thanks Giving from Jim & Bob Egan

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.

Church Renovation Remodeling Project in Manhattan

15 Dec 2011

Posted by Joseph Coupal

Church renovation remodeling or building a church addition can be an expansive and stressful project. Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations would like to make that project easier. We are a provider of church furnishings, such as wood, bronze and marble statues; communion bread, collection baskets, church candles and communion ware.

But what’s more, we have experience in restoring and remodeling churches in New England, New York and New Jersey. With an expansive portfolio, Thos. P Egan Inc, Church Restorations brings a full team of experienced church artists and crafts people to every project. Here is a project we are working on in Manhattan, NY.

Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, Manhattan:
 
The scope of work for this church restoration project consists of repairing all of the damaged plaster in interior of the church. We helped advise the pastor and building committee on new color schemes and adding decorative painting so many of the church walls.

We will commence painting the interior of the church using multiple types of decorative painting including, gold leaf, and faux marble effects. You can see in the above image, the section of church painting we completed is on the left and the painting that we have not yet begun is on the right.

But oil painting restoration is also part of what our specialists do. We have been enlisted to clean and preserve five beautiful 25’ tall oil paintings on canvas.

Additionally, we are installing new metal kneelers to all of the church pews.

But the interior of the church is not the only part of Our Lady of Good Counsel that is being restored. As specialists in new stained glass window designs and stained glass restoration, we replaced the exterior protective coverings over the existing stained glass windows.
 
Estimated completion date of this project is March 30, 2012. This date includes stoppage of work for the holidays and any expected delays.  

Let us make it easier for you to furnish and refinish your church, contact Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations.
