I think in general, Im most proud of the liturgical metalwork we are fortunate enough to create. Not just the glamorous work like at the Bryn Athyn Cathedral and the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception but also little spaces like this understated chapel at Christo Rey and the modest tabernacle grill we made. . . #liturgicalspace #liturgicalmetalwork #ironstudio
