In 1922, a father and his eight sons immigrated to North America, hoping to bring their centuries-old trade to a new land. Alfeo Bracci, the youngest apprentice of the group, made his way to Chicago to begin a new life. By day he produced small plaster pieces of saints and figurines that he sold door to door at night. In 1945, after years of hard work and faced with the new responsibility of providing for a family, Alfeo and his wife Anna moved to Southern California with their two sons, Ron and Don. It is here in 1949 that the Al’s Garden Art brand was born.
Alfeo and Anna began sculpting and making molds like in the “old days”, finishing and painting each piece by hand. After more than half a century, their skills and passion for creating top quality cast stone art have been handed down to their sons and grandsons.
Today, these unique sculptures are produced by Fiore Stone, Inc., a manufacturing company committed to providing quality cast-stone fountains and statuary, you and your family will enjoy for generations to come.
