Columbarium and Tabernacle
Design and Creation First Lutheran Church
Quite a large piece, this Columbarium towers at approximately 10 feet in height. This original design is based on Medieval Romanesque reliquaries. With a gold leafed wood construction and an impressive bronze framework gate, the majesty of the Columbarium expresses the importance of its inhabitants. The gate itself is inlaid with cast glass panels depicting the Lamb of God and liturgical symbols and ornament hand painted with 24 karat gold and then kiln fired for permanency. The roof is layered in copper enamel shingles and inlaid copper enamel decoration is also used throughout the rest of the piece.
An originally designed Tabernacle and Tabernacle Throne was created specifically for the First Lutheran Church. This Tabernacle is in the form of a triptych. With the doors closed, hand formed copper panels of the Four Evangelists are seen set into the oak framework. Upon opening the outer panels, several oil paintings are revealed. The center depicts the Pieta, and the outer panels two candle bearing angels. The center painting, when opened, reveals a bronze tabernacle barred by a single cast bronze door with the image of "The Lamb of God."
New Guild Studio has been in the liturgical arts field since 1991. Over the years, the company of four - David and Suzann Miriello and David and Mary Korns - have completed numerous sacred art projects that range in scope and scale from the design and production of a single chalice to the renovation of an entire church.
From the beginning, sacred art has brought form and fulfillment to mans quest
for the divine. Rendered by the right hands, familiar motifs and figures have
the power to move people beyond the practical concerns of the world,
awakening in them the possibilities of the eternal.
