Creative Stone Art Design

AAS has proven track record for developing creative stone art pieces while working on a range projects such as educational buildings, commercial buildings, hospitality, retail spaces, museums, churches, residential buildings, etc.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: SUNDANCE PALACE THEATER

 

AAS developed the large protruding decorative keystone for the front elevation of the building using architectural GFRC. AAS artist developed the matching replica of the original design piece using clay. Once it was approved by the architects, the team used that to develop rubber mold for the piece. This mold was used in turn to fabricate the keystone with intricate design details using GFRC architectural stone product material.

PROJECT EXAMPLE: 714 MAIN STREET, FT. WORTH, TX

 

The designers wanted to recreate the Roman Soldier Heads while renovating this historic commercial building in the downtown Ft. Worth, TX.

The original artwork of the Roman Soldier Heads was not available. Recreating them required new artwork and custom molds. All that the AAS team had to start, were the old photographs of the building with Roman Soldier Heads. The AAS team worked with an artist to recreate the original artwork. It then used the newly designed artwork to create a special series of molds.

Black blasting material was added to the batch mix to achieve the look of the original heads produced in terracotta.
