creativity meets craftsmanship

Religion is a powerful catalyst for craftsmanship. The art and furnishings found in synagogues, museums and private collections created by Studio Gruss are among the finest.

When Studio Gruss approaches a project clients experience absolute commitment. Our background in fine arts and regard for elegance is a critical consideration when comparing Studio Gruss to other firms involved in religious art and synagogue design.
