How did you get started in stone carving and how long have you
been in business ?
Ferree Studios has humble beginnings. In
the year 1986 the creator and owner of Ferree Studios (Wayne D. Ferree) started producing
stone carvings for the Washington National Cathedral gift shop. NW. DC.
At the time he was employed as a stone
carver at the National Cathedral under the direction of master carver Vincent Palumbo.
When his work was ended at the Cathedral
due to its completion by 13 carvers and 8 masons. Wayne moved with his lovely wife and
sons to Scranton, PA where he continued to pursue his stone carving career as Ferree
Ferree Studios for the past 17 years has
been based in Northeastern, PA and is conveniently located south of Nicholson PA on state
route 92. Due to hard work and a small group of faithful wholesale clients, Ferree Studios
has grown and is now poised to reach a larger market.
How do you carve stone ?
Stone carving is a process that begins
with an idea or concept. A stone of appropriate size and quality is then selected for the
project. By using visual aids such as drawings, photos, and/ or models the carving
is begun and taken to a finished product in a series of steps.

The process is facilitated by the use of
saws, chisels, hammers and files. With diligence, concentration, and a little luck the
project goes as planned and the chips fall where they may.
