Artisans of the Valley - Architectural Elements Metalwork
Artisans is launching a line of Architectureal Elements
Artisans of the Valley, based in Pennington, NJ, is an exclusive custom furniture, cabinetry, carving, and restoration shop. These craftsmen are the last of the traditional apprenticeship method of passing on the skills of furniture design, joynery, carving, and finishing. We offer our custom furniture by commission, and we hand sign and date each piece upon completion.
For over 35 years Master Craftsman Stanley D. Saperstein has perfected his skills and in the process passed these skills to his son Eric. Eric has now taken the reins of the business, studio, and the title of Master Craftsman.
2009 is brining in a new Architectureal Elements product line. We have 5,000 patterns to select from, available in oak, maple, or cherry from stock or in almost any material by special order. We’ll also provide our design and our shop services to enhance and finish these products. All our custom services and hand carving remains the same, now we just have a few things we can take off the shelf and sell!
Artisans Architecturals is a machine carved product, using all the available tooling ranging from lathes and presses to spindle carvers through to fully automated CNC equipment. All of the pieces marked as hand carved each receive special attention by specialized carvers to assure that all the little details are properly in place. Artisans also offers a final touch service to provide our own master’s level carving skills to complete the last and final details upon request.
Artisans will provide design, assembly, and finishing services to incorporate these elements into furniture, and mantles. We will also provide consulting services and design assistance for projects requiring built-in cabinetry, moldings, stair cases, or other architectural details.
Use your imagination as a designer, and you’ll envision countless uses for these products. Artisans can provide custom furniture incorporating the same elements to be implemented in a the room. This allows continuity in design and carries a unique method of developing themes for traditional and modern visions. We can provide simple scrolls or ropes through grapes, vines, and acanthus leaves. The higher end of our architectural line even incorporates eagles, horses, elephants and lions.
While we implement pieces from our manufactured line, always keep in mind that our array of custom options can extend to continue your design themes far beyond production elements. Contact us to request our CD portfolio to review Artisans Architecturals!
Artisans offers heirloom quality hand rubbed shellac and tung oil finishes as well as hand painted options on any of our pieces. In addition, modern finishes are available through our affiliates including the full spectrum of lacquers, acrylics, and urethanes.
Artisans of the Valley is the last of the true conservation studios in New Jersey, providing museum quality restorations, refinishing, repair, and preservation services.
