Fireplace Masterworks by Lew French
Stone Artisan Extraordinaire!

The masterful fireplace creations featured here showcase the work of one of today's leading stone artisans,  Lew French.    His outstanding crafts-
manship and distinctively precise arrangements of natural stone -- similar to that of a jigsaw puzzle -- are raising the bar on stone hearth design!

To call Lew French a perfectionist is an understatement. The work of this master stone artisan is nothing short of extraordinary!    Known to travel great distances over periods of several days, if necessary, to find just the right stone or combination of stones for whatever project he is working on, his creations are amazing examples of the stoneworker's art. He is -- in a very literal sense -- a true Rock Star!

Each and every stone, rock and pebble is carefully positioned to fit so precise-
ly that mortar is not needed to hold his outstanding compositions together.  In addition, depending upon the scope of the  project,  Lew  meticulously  incor-
porates  other  materials such as drift- wood  in  some  of  his unique designs.  The stiking example pictured  at  right was created -- appropriately enough -- for a beach cottage.


(All images of Lew's work featured on
this page were brilliantly captured by
photographer Alison Shaw.)



The following examples provide a good cross section of the depth and breadth of Lew's remarkable stonemasonry skills . . . as well as hint at the vast range of potential possibilities.  Clearly, his unbridled talent and tre-
mendous commitment to "perfecting" his craft continue to inspire us!
