Al specializes in custom hand carved ship carvings. He custom designs each finished product and enjoys working closely with his clients through the design process. Using only the finest grade wood, along with 23 kt gold leaf and the highest quality paint and finish available, the finished products are of superior quality. His specialty focuses on nautical carvings to include American eagles, quarterboards, and signage often seen adorning sailing vessels from the late 18th to early 19th Century.
What began as a hobby, his interest in woodcarving continues to grow. Many of his pieces have been sold throughout the Country, and have been exhibited at various marine art galleries in New England to include Mystic Seaport and the former Art of the Sea in mid-coast Maine.
Al enjoys carving in his workshops located in Essex, CT and Tenants Harbor, ME.
