Russian Chapel

The inspiration for this architectural model came directly from an actual Russian Orthodox Chapel located in Antarctica. Though not exactly the same, I believe that the spirit of the design was successfully executed. From start to finish, this piece took me about 6 days to complete. The materials which were used in its construction included: matte board, bristol board, museum board, bass wood, sculpted clay, and acrylic paint.

St. Melchisedec Shrine

This little model is dedicated to St. Melchisedec, one of the most mysterious characters in the Bible. This shrine is intended to fit only one person at a time, that way the individual may have a more concentrated and more personal experience while in prayer to St. Melchisedec. The scale is 1/8" = 1' and was crafted using materials such as foam core board, chip board, bass wood, and acrylic paint.

St. Elias Chapel


The design of this model was based upon an actual chapel dedicated to the holy prophet Elijah, which stands on the hilltop overlooking St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery in Florence, Arizona. Much geometrical effort was used in order to construct this model successfully. The materials used to complete the piece included bass wood, museum board, and acrylic paint.
