LITURGICAL FURNITURE

In 1980, Andrew Fee began working on the restoration of Cathedrals and churches in Canada and the United States. During that period he was commissioned to produced several pieces of Liturgical Furniture. Bishop's Chairs, Celebrant's Chairs, Altar Screens, Acolites Stools and Celebrant's Tables were some of the labour-intensive one-of-a-kind pieces created. All where hand-made of solid white oak using traditional hand-carving techniques and finishes. In addition, many of the chairs were upholstered with velvet or damask silk shot with gold thread. One of two magnificent Bishop's Chair's had a hand-painted and gilded leather crest while the other was finished with hand-embroidered metallic and silk thread.
