Davie, Florida – Premier Stoneworks, LLC has received the Craftsmanship Award in Stonework at the Construction Association of South Florida 58th Annual Awards Banquet.
Premier Stoneworks received this award for The Bearded Man sculpture that is located on the façade of 530 Lincoln Road. Donaldo Perez, their in-house carver was responsible for recreating this masterpiece utilizing only historical photographs dating back to 1950’s. He carved everything in stages to simplify the approval process and handling. The art was divided into different components; the face, the hat which formed a bell curve balcony, the conch shells forming ears, the side pilasters and final shell details surrounding the entire piece. The craftsmanship required to emulate this historical piece, the complexity of all the details and its uniqueness, crated a challenge like no other project. Donaldo’s precision, dedication and artistry has caught attention of municipalities, local artists, and industry colleagues.
The Craftsmanship Award celebrates years of outstanding workmanship throughout Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties. The awards were presented in various categories from over 130 nominations.
