Phil Diers has engaged in sculpture, mold making and casting and has worked in the building trades since 1970.  He has executed architectural ornamentation and sculpture in plaster, resin-stone or concrete, including custom mantels, friezes, gargoyles, cartouches, ornate mirror frames, figures and fountains.  When provided with a photograph or a drawing, Phil sculpts to specifications in three dimensions.

Lyncrusta or anaglypta wallcovering.
Since 1987, Phil has responded to the needs of people who want to find replacement embossed wallcovering, but were unable to find it available commercially, He can take an accurate impression of an existing lyncrusta or anaglypta wallcovering design and reproduce it in a product of similar thickness and detail. He also retains some molds in his collection that have patterns that are likely to exist in someone’s home or business.
