Founder and owner of DMS Studios, Daniel Sinclair,  is a European-trained American stone sculptor educated in the classical tradition.    After a five year  apprenticeship  honing  his  craft  under  a  master  stone artisan in Pietrasanta, Italy,  Daniel subsequently returned to the United States and established DMS Studios in 1979 .  In addition to the White House, his im-
pressive client list includes the United States Capitol, the New York Public Library, West Point Military Academy, and Grand Central Station.     A true master artisan, his extraordinary work has won numerous awards.

The custom fireplace mantels from DMS Studios are entirely  hand  carved from the finest varieties of  limestone  and  marble.     Classic and elegant,
each fireplace mantel is a veritable work of art!

The  photos of stone fireplaces that follow reflect a broad range of classic styles that demonstrate the ability and skill of DMS Studios to  masterfully execute a vast repertoire of diverse designs.      Crafted in the "Old World" tradition, the quality of craftsmanship is unparalleled by today's standards!

The photos of stone fireplaces that follow showcase  a  magnificent  stone fireplace mantle crafted from Chiampi Marble, imported from Italy. The focal point of an elegant paneled ballroom,  it features meticulously carved capi-
tals with rosettes above them.  A hand carved egg and dart motif runs the length of the mantel, just below the mantel shelf.

The stone fireplace photos that follow feature an absolutely stunning mar-
ble fireplace mantel!     The  rare  and  beautiful  marble employed here  -- Calacatta Vagli Rosato  --  was quarried and  imported  from  Lucca,  Italy, specifically for this mantel.   Though very beautiful in color,  this variety of marble is brittle and difficult to work with.    Despite  its  challenges,  DMS Studios masterfully executed the design.     Note the delicate and flawless carving in the close-up image below right.

The Classically-inspired stone fireplace surround that follows is carved from pure white limestone imported from Europe.      Flanking the arched firebox opening are small columns with Ionic capitals which, in turn, are flanked by larger fluted columns with more elaborate Composite capitals.
