As part of that search, I came to be introduced to the work of Agrell Architectural Woodcarving who specialize in woodcarving, within a domestic, public and ecclesiastical context. I was rather impressed with the quality work I saw coming from them in a variety of styles, from that which is gothic, more baroque, to that "other modern" we have been considering lately.
Their connection with the Cathedral of the Madeleine is that they carved the very same sacrament house which we briefly showed, and also the screen pictured below which forms a part of today's cathedra in that cathedral.
Some other images from their site shows forth some of their skills, and it should take little imagination to consider how these might be applied within an ecclesiastical context today.
