scuplture and ornamental plaster
Phil Diers, Sculptor
Phil Diers has been sculpting, making molds and castings for over thirty-four years. Since 1985, the area of architectural ornamentation, moldmaking and sculpture has been his focus, working in plaster, concrete, resin-stone, and bronze. His specialties include sculpted figures of humans and animals, custom fireplace mantels, friezes, gargoyles, decorative mirror frames and cartouches. He has also designed and sculpted fountains. Working from a photograph or a drawing, he can create any design by sculpting it to exact specifications. Phil has also responded to the needs of clients who wish to replace missing areas of existing vintage embossed wallcovering (i.e. Lincrusta and Anaglypta), using his own unique lincrusta matching process.
Recent projects include a nine foot across frieze for the Ames Building in Mountain View, California, reproduction of large ionic capitals for a mansion in San Francisco and sculpting a pair of owls to embellish the exterior of a Palo Alto theater.
