above by master artisan, Clay Chapman!

Today's  renewed  appreciation   for quality craftsmanship  and  detailing causes  us  to  look  to the past for inspiration,  such  as  the Craftsman Style,  popular  at  the  turn  of the
20th  century.     The stunning brick surround pictured at left  is  located
in  Pasadena,  California,  in  the leg-
endary   Gamble  House,   a  master-
piece of Craftsman design completed
in 1909.

The striking fireplace designs that follow borrow from architectural styles of the past.   Pictured below,  left,  is a Colonial Revival fireplace for a Shingle Style home,  designed by Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects/Builders, one of the outstanding architectural design firms in the U.S.

The fireplace design  pictured  below,  right,  was  inspired  by  the  Prairie School  movement,   led  by  architect  Frank  Lloyd  Wright  (1867-1959). Though a late 19th and early 20th century architectural style,  the  Prairie School fireplace featured here has a contemporary flair!

The brick hearth image at right was captured through the lens of  highly talented architectural photographer, Roger Wade.   Note the timber work framing the fireplace,  including the wood mantel shelf.








The  grand  fireplace  pictured below was designed by Summerstone Pro-
ductions in Flint,  Michigan.   At 22 ft. long x 8 1/2 ft. high,  it features a large raised hearth with steps leading up to it on either side.    A massive wood mantel shelf helps to balance the overall design.
