Stonework
 

Dixon Studio offers custom stone work for a variety of religious applications, including altars, fonts, and furnishings for the interior as well as columbaria and grottoes for the exterior.

Marble, granite, limestone, and rock are carefully selected for their beauty and suitability for each project.

Designs are created in the studio for each unique application and then executed by skilled craftsmen on site.

Dixon Studio is a Class A Contractor licensed in the state of Virginia and carries full liability and workers compensation insurance to protect its clients and its crews for site work.

The primary stone crew is comprised of four craftsmen who apprenticed with master mason and sculptor Harold Vogel.
In addition to their ecclesiastical work for Dixon Studio, they have worked on many large scale projects of national significance including Arlington National Cemetery, the CIA, Duke University, Princeton University, and the Smithsonian Institution.

  
On staff, the studio employs an experienced quarry foreman who brings a unique undertanding of stone and its attributes from the source.

And, as a fine art studio, Dixon Studio maintains close relationships with three Italian sculpture workshops to execute custom designed statuary in marble.
Full size drawings are shipped to Italy for fabrication, and the studio takes care of all logistics of shipping, customs, delivery, and installation.

In addition, the studio offers repair and restoration services for existing stonework, as well as sources for vintage statuary and architectural elements from closing and renovating churches.
