Liturgical Metalwork

Liturgical metalwork is a rare specialty of Cheney Metals.  Working in sensitive environments we have created altar and sacristy accessories, baptismal fonts, candle holders, pulpit adornments, tabernacles, vessels for holy waters and oils, and various decor and adornments for churches, cathedrals, parishes, basilicas and other houses of worship.

Our work and installations are conducted with the utmost respect for the commissioning agencies, their representatives, and their belief systems.
