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. Artisans will evaluate your antiques and collectables to determine the best options for your cherished possessions. Artisans is one of the few remaining restoration studios that can handle restoring a true shellac finish and provide the skills necessary to replace or restore damaged ball and claw feet, detailed carvings, and veneer.

Bent on educating our clients, Artisans offers a tactical theory on restoration entitled “The Philosophy of Restoration.” This article outlines the concepts associated with restoration, and helps dispense the myth surrounding antiques and their care. Artisans restoration services are not limited to furniture; we handles military artifacts such as firearms, swords, and leather goods. We are the only conservation studio restoring antique and collectable chess sets; bragging

Woven Wire Meshes Formed Wire Grilles Custom Metal Fabrications We also do metal in detail. Sometimes, the final piece of the perfect design is incredibly detailed and elaborate. Other times, it’s much simpler and elegant. Having experience with both—and everything in between—we’re here to create the wire or metal piece that you desire to distinguish your furniture or cabinetry design. When you’re developing your next design, consider customizing either an innovative or classically decorative piece of woven wire mesh, formed wire grille or custom metal fabrication from Klise—providing the perfect finishing detail. Ordering information. To place an order or request a quotation, please supply the following information: Pattern number (style) Mesh opening size(s), wire-to-wire, center to center Direction of pattern (i.e. diamond, square, etc.) Wire size & style (round, square, flat, plain, reeded) Electroplating and finishing effect Number of pieces and their size(s) Pattern repeat if needed Rosettes, cones, or clips & positioning Frame width, if applicable Rabbet width, if applicable Submit sketch or drawing for clarification if necessary For Style #600 or other custom designed grilles, a detailed drawing is required, showing all dimensions, number of pattern repeats across the piece(s), and rosette placement, if required. Installation information. Our wire mesh grilles are hand-woven to customer specifications for wire size and shape, finish, mesh size, and overall size and shape. Wire meshes are not welded, but are held together by the interlocking effect of weaving. As a result, the nature of the grille is to be somewhat flexible, and during shipping and handling the grille is likely to change shape somewhat and may appear to be the wrong size. However, by compressing or scissoring the grille you will notice that the length and width will change. • • • • • • • • • • • Tolerances for unframed grilles are –0", +1/8" in width and –0", +1/4" in length. Tolerances for metal framed grilles are –0", +1/8" for both length and width. Rosettes, if ordered, are tack- welded to the grille, which has the side effect of “freezing” the grille to a fixed shape. Please design grille mounting enclosures with these tolerances and effects in mind, as framed grilles and grilles with Rosettes are not adjustable. Exact color matches cannot be guaranteed. Color variations within an order should be minimal, but from one order to the next or from a sample to a production order there may be slight variations. If matching is critical, you may want to order unfinished grilles, and have them plated locally, where you can inspect them before acceptance. For proper installation you should extend the length by compressing the width slightly with a scissoring motion, making the grille slightly narrower than necessary to place in the opening. Allow (or help with the scissoring motion) the grille to return to the full width of the opening and be sure it is centered over the length of the opening. There may be a slight amount of excess grille at each end along the length. This is due to slight variations that occur during both the process of cabinet manufacturing and the assembly of woven wire mesh grilles. Any excess can be removed by cutting the wire ends. Be careful to remove an equal amount from both ends in order to retain the symmetry of the grille within the opening. If you have any further questions, please contact the Klise Sales Department at 616-459-4283. Rosettes and cones. Rosettes and cones are the perfect addition to make your grille unique. These items are available in any electroplating and finishing effects. Other styles and types are available for special order. (Shown in Brass) Standard materials. Steel wire is the most commonly used and is used unless otherwise requested. If specified, tempered brass wire can be substituted to resist denting and for permanency of configuration. Standard finishes. Standard electroplating options are Brass, Copper and Steel. Chrome, Nickel, Pewter and Bronze are also available. Standard finishing effects include Antique, Satin and Bright, with special finishes and glazing effects also available to fulfill design requirements. For most grilles, plain steel or brass wire is crimped as needed, hand-woven to customer specifications, and then electroplated. Grilles are then electro- oxidized for antique effects and rubbed. Finally, a high grade lacquer spray coating is applied for a more durable finish. Plain steel or solid brass wire grilles without electroplating or finishing effects are also available. Maximum piece size for plating is 48" x 72". Electroplating and finishing effects are not guaranteed to match from one run to another. Illustrated here are the three basic wire-crimps usually used in mesh weave configurations—single, press and double crimped. Klise grilles can be supplied with special attaching provisions such as nail holes, matching metal frames or mounting tabs. (Special attaching provisions are not generally recommended on woven meshes.) A drawing or simple sketch will be helpful in showing required details.
