Based in the Philadelphia area (Berlin Township, Camden County, NJ), with satellites in NYC & The Hamptons, Ascalon Studios is a boutique art and design firm specializing in the creation of public sculpture, large-scale site-specific artwork, and innovative donor recognition solutions for public, worship, and institutional spaces throughout North America. Ascalon Studios was founded by the Hungarian-born master sculpture Maurice Ascalon (1913 to 2003), and his son, the artist and designer David Ascalon (1945-). Since its establishment in the late 1970s, the firm has undertaken major commissions for hundreds of public and private institutions from coast to coast. The firm operates under the artistic direction of its president and design director, David Ascalon, an architecture and design graduate of New York's Pratt Institute.
Ascalon Studios operates in a 6,000 square foot industrial facility situated on wooded acreage on the edge of New Jersey's pine barrens, thirty minutes east of Philadelphia and 90 minutes south of New York City. The studio's talented staff of in-house artisans translate the Ascalon vision into finished works in a wide array of artistic media and materials, including stained glass windows, fused glass, and other architectural glass art; mosaics; and relief, freestanding, and suspended kinetic sculpture in a variety of cast and fabricated metals.
