We hope you take the time to explore the pages of this site. We have organized the work into 3 basic categories; 1) Crosses, which are free form.
After many successful years in the Home Decor Industry, artist and designer Richard Casey, creator of the multiple award winning architectural elements line "The Casey Collection", has re-emerged after taking a much deserved sabbatical. This time, however, Richard is following his heart and creating pieces that inspire the observer and hopefully give honor to God. Focusing on Spiritual Symbolism and the Cruciform in particular, Richard's objective is to create inspirational works of art based on his Judeo Christian faith that are both beautiful yet remind us of the agony Jesus suffered on the cross.

For those of you who already own one or more of these pieces we'd love to hear from you! Please take a moment to tell Richard how they have impacted your life.
