Hand made, sculpted cement made to look like wood.

Faux bois pieces for homes, retail, hospitality, commercial business, and public spaces.

noun – French  /foʊ bwɑ/

Faux bois means false wood; it is sculpted cement that looks like wood and bark. The art of faux bois began in the 19th century in France, when craftsmen learned the art of sculpting cement to look like bark and wood.

Faux bois items that are generations old are cherished by collectors. Antique and contemporary pieces are often featured as an interior or exterior décor or furnishing option.

Hi, I am Mike Ciaravola, a 6th generation Italian stone mason. I hand-sculpt faux bois cement into unique and enchanting pieces.
My architectural faux bois designs are inspired by nature to look like wood grain and bark.
I create inspired designs that haven’t been seen before.

With cement, I can create faux bois designs for almost anything that comes to the imagination — fire places, furniture, fences, shelters, bridges, pergolas, trellis, arbors, railings, window frames on structures. 

Each piece is individually designed and hand sculpted for each client without the use of molds.

The beauty of faux bois is only enhanced by time and weather, and constructed to last centuries. 

Have a unique vision that isn’t found on our website? Contact me and I most likely can create it for you.
