The fabulous cast stone products pictured on this page were made from  molds by Dale Mallie and the installation pictures and designs are copyright 1999, ARCHETYPE INC. The molds were made by Dale from the wooden models I carved using his drawn specifications. 

For me, woodcarving does not get much better than this and it all started with a great design in Dale's head that he committed to paper and gave to me to make. For more information, please contact:
