Bas Relief

Bas relief is a sculpture technique in which figures and other design elements are raised from a flat background. American relief sculptors drew inspiration from the many applications of bas relief on facades and victory arches in Europe and began creating relief works on churches and federal government buildings in the 19th century.

Our plaster artists and artisans are experts in restoring and recreating bas relief applications in historic hotel lobbies, theaters, sacred spaces, and civic buildings across the nation.
