Orthodox, Russian and religious crosses, icons, angels, and gifts hand crafted  in the traditional Byzantine Art style using tin or aluminum.  Icons related to Bible




Each piece is hand inscribed  with a stylus onto a  sheet-metal  of 0.1mm thickness. The metal is an alloy made of aluminum, tin and pewter. It will never rust nor will  it need to be polished.  The metal is very malleable and easy to work with.  First, on the back side of the metal you inscribe the design, creating a relieved area on the front of the metal,  then  carefully sculpt or outline the relieved area shaping the lines of the design as tightly as possible.


Once the embossing process is finished, proceed to mounting the work on a piece of wood.   Usually  pieces are mounted on wood of 1/2" thickness. This is used mainly for icons and crosses.  Different shapes of wood are used for boxes, frames, clocks and more.


Once you have mounted the metal onto the wood you can apply a patina to give it an antique look.



We have created these easy new processes so that you can create art pieces built with an ancient technique made simple!

Or  simply enjoy and hang on you walls the pieces already made for you by our expert artists.
