1988-1990 St. Thomas in the Foothills
Tucson, Arizona

Architect: Seaver Franks Architects

 The St. Thomas in the foothills church interior fitments arose as a collaboration with Rory McCarthy Design to create an altar, ambo, baptismal font, tabernacle, and the 14 stations of the cross in cast stone.

These architectonic pieces relate to the larger geometry and symbolism of the Tucson Catalina Foothills Church designed by Seaver Franks Architects.
