St. Joseph’s Sacred Heart

St. Joseph’s Sacred Heart

We are presently restoring St Joseph catholic church in Canard, near Windsor

  • The original Sacred heart XIXth century concrete cast was decomposing a piece at the time.
  • Many previous repairs were very conspicuous and failed.
  • The whole sculpture was covered with an irreversible coat of resin varnish and sand.
  • The coating added to the loss of details due to weathering created a distorted finish.
  • The whole coating had to be grinded off and the sculpture had to be completely remodeled about ½” overall the whole surface.
  • New hands were made

  • The original restored could not be any longer be in an outside location
  • We made a mould,
  • We made a copy in resin and Stainless steel
  • The copy is now at the location of the original and the original has found a new home inside the building away from the weather
  • Duration 12 months
