Massive Terra Cotta Ornaments Revive Classical Style

For the historic Tomochichi Federal Courthouse in Savannah, Georgia, restoration of the building has yielded large and intricately detailed pieces here at Boston Valley. The carefully sculpted ornamental brackets stand at around three and a half feet tall, and are fabricated with incredible detail, both in the ornamental sculpture and in the building attachment brackets.

The scale and detail of these brackets make for a very imposing and impressive façade

The Tomochichi Federal Courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Buildings in 1974, and the entire façade is heavily ornamented. These pieces are going to be featured on the underside of the roof soffit. 129 single corbels and 12 corner corbels are currently in production.
