All my work is handcarved. Usually in any one of the classical styles. I spezialize in heraldic crests, but do any kind of custom work, such as mirror frames, wall clocks, name plates for leisure boats, company logotypes, etc. Either according to my own design or customer provided patterns. Please contact me for further information.
