A one-of-a-kind architectural stone project is exciting but can be intimidating.

As you begin to ponder the potential of your ideas, it can be tempting to dismiss them as impossible to make a reality. You may have just a seed of an idea, but ironing out the details and shaping it into something that can exist and be truly amazing can feel like an unachievable dream not worth pursuing.

If you’re like many of our clients, you believe it’s impossible to get beautiful results with your custom stone project or find old world artisans without having to go to Europe. Finding somebody domestically with full-service capabilities can feel like an impossible quest.

Mario & Son understands these hesitations and doubts, and guiding clients through the processes of turning dreams into reality is where we shine our brightest.

What Our Raving Fans Have To Say…

“He’s is a Master Craftsman,”
The Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes Altar Society group, suggested the cathedral house a shrine St. Peregrine. There are only two other shrines in the United States, one in Portland and one in Chicago.

The key component of the shrine will be a large painting that will be housed in a marble alcove created by Joey Marcella of Mario & Son, a Liberty Lake stonework company. Connall said he’s been impressed by the work of Marcella, who also made the cathedral’s marble altar. “He’s is a master craftsman,” he said. “He’s a hidden gem.”

“Their Work Was Superb”
Being the pastor of St. Augustine Parish in Spokane, I have had several opportunities to work with Joey Marcella of Mario & Son. Several years ago, Mario & Son completed a baptismal font and inlaid marble floor in the church. Their work was superb and working with Joey was a pleasure, as he introduced ideas and suggested features that greatly enhanced the work.

Therefore, I definitely wanted Joey involved when designing the sanctuary which included an altar for the tabernacle, as well as the main altar and ambo (pulpit). While I had definite ideas regarding what I wanted, I can sincerely say that Joey’s input was instrumental in bringing about the beautiful sanctuary that we have today. The craftsmanship and the attention to detail is immediately apparent as one inspects the altars and ambo.
I am deeply grateful for the time and effort that Joey gave to this project.

“Beautiful” and “Magnificent”
Dear Joey,
I just want to let you know that the new ambo and chair were very well received by the parishioners over the weekend. Following the blessing and Mass, folks went up to get a close look; it was lovely to see them touch the stone, following the “waves” with their hands, and trying out the chair for themselves…especially the kids. People had nothing but very positive comments, using words like “beautiful” and “magnificent”. Nobody seemed to miss the old wood furnishings in the least! I, too, love them…I think they perfectly fit our space and the architectural style of our church. It is almost like they are the furnishings that should have been there all along.

So thanks so much for all you did to bring these pieces to life! Please also extend to your staff our thanks for their help…especially the delivery guys!
