Stone iconostasesAn integral element of temple art, the iconostasis, as “the place where the icons stand”, bewitches the views of the visitors to whom the faces of the saints are turned. Natural stone will serve as a worthy frame for them, because it has been used for a long time to create an iconostasis. Covered with carvings, this stone masterpiece opens up a wide range of play of light and shadow, inspiring its parishioners.
Making an iconostasis from stone requires a professional approach, because each stage must be performed with the highest skill - from design work, the correct ratio of the size of the iconostasis and the room, to its professional installation on a previously designed metal frame.
Stone floorsThe floor covering, as the basic element of the room, which combines strength and beauty, must have excellent performance characteristics. A temple floor made of marble or granite is a durable aesthetics that requires little or no additional investment of effort and expense. In addition, from several types of stone, many decor options are possible - from monochromatic to mosaic.
Since the floor has a significant effect on the picture of the room and is exposed to the most intense loads, it is important to make it with the highest characteristics of wear resistance. Hundreds of steps every day and huge weight - this task is best handled by a covering made of natural stone.
ThronesTraditionally, the decoration of the altar space, especially the thrones, is of great importance. They are one of the main components of the sublime and solemn atmosphere.
Natural stone ensures a long service life of the product, guarantees a wide selection of different colors and shades, makes it possible to diversify the surface from mirror-glossy to rough-matte, and is excellent in combination with other finishing materials.
White marble is the most common material for making thrones. The altar of marble can also be decorated with carvings made in the Greek, Byzantine styles, made according to the Gospel motives. In addition, marble or granite decorative inserts in contrasting colors can be used.
KyotesKyotes are an important element of the interior decoration of the temple. With its help, it is possible to preserve holy images (canvas, wooden frames, paints) that are sensitive to humidity, lighting and other environmental conditions. And it is the icon cases that create a favorable microclimate for the safe storage of icons.
Icon cases made of natural stone are filled with aesthetic dignity and impeccable practicality. They will impeccably withstand the frequent touches of parishioners. The integrity of the coatings will not be affected in any way by temperature fluctuations and humidity. Most often made of marble, the icon case does not lend itself to time.
Facades of Temples made of stoneThe appearance of the temple is important both from the aesthetic point of view and from the position that the temple is an element of cultural consciousness that unites the "heavenly" and "earthly".The symbol of faith in a stone image creates a sense of reliability, strong faith, unshakable time.
Modern technologies in cladding, such as ventilated facades, make it possible to make temple architecture, diverse in its traditional forms, in a more perfect format.
CrossesThe cross is central to ritual practice and church architecture. Made of stone, this one of the main religious images is impressive.
Also, the creation process is assigned to professionals. The prepared blocks of stone are sawn using waterjet cutting equipment. Finished fragments are ground and polished to complete the aesthetic perception. With the help of computer technology, a pattern is modeled, which is applied to the surface of the stone.
The material is granite and marble. Granite is insensitive to changes in temperature and humidity, and is used to create outdoor crosses. Marble, which is easy to work with chisels, finds its place inside temples.
Church iconsThe icon, carved from stone, is not only an example of art, but an image of worship that has obscured for centuries.
Stone - durable and resistant to weathering will create a need for restoration over the centuries. Another remarkable property of the stone is the ability to succumb to embossed and rounded outlines. For facade icons, natural marble is a good solution. Due to the light translucency, a play of sun rays is formed on the smooth surface of the marble product, creating the effect of mystery and depth of space.
When carving stone, many factors are taken into account: the depth of cut of the marble, the ground or polished surface finish, and it is also important to use only high quality stone.
