Our traditional hand-carving techniques are second to none. We are one of the few woodcarving companies today that never carves by machine. We never have, and we never will. We use same hand tools and techniques handed down through generations of craftspeople because it’s still the most efficient way to create the most beautiful and historically accurate decoration.
Our carvers enrich the ornamentation with skills acquired through decades of exposure to high-quality commissions. Our work’s clean, crisp lines are a manifestation of the structure, flow, and movement inherent in first-rate hand-carved ornamentation. When it comes to artistry, no machine or computer will ever compete with a human. Your project will be unique because we are not restricted by a machine’s limitations or a finite selection of manufactured elements. In fact, we’d rather cast ornaments from custom masters than work with pre-manufactured or machine-carved decoration.
Hand-carved elements can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the project, whether that be cost, design, size, or wood species. For example, with machine-carved and cast mouldings, you’ll see an awkward clash of shapes wherever there is a miter. Because our mouldings are custom-carved by hand, each piece is designed to fit perfectly in place.
You are here because you are looking for something unique and not a generic substitute. We will deliver masterpieces of carved decoration that your client will forever cherish. The human touch is what sets Agrell Architectural Carving apart.
