What's New?  

Kurjanowicz Studio was founded to expedite the monumental orders of the Barre granite industry. While we have diversified over the ensuing years, this continues to be one of the strongest areas of studio expertise.

A monumental project that involves sculpture should have its inception with the sculptor. Studio designers have the experience and knowledge to guide our customers from concept to fabrication. Whether a private monument is your goal, or public memorialization is your agenda, Kurjanowicz Studio should be your starting point on the road to a successful project.

Studio sculptors ensure that our customers are well served by a wide range of styles. Our work extends from the literal and figurative to the whimsical and stylized, as illustrated by the following examples.

  Black History Fountain
Chicago sculptor Jerzy Kenar entrusted the studio with the execution of his concept for the
