Among them are very creative,  exqui-
sitely  detailed  designs  such  as  the
one pictured at right.  Utilizing a com-
bination  of  materials   with   varying textures,  colors and finishes, this de-
lightful composition of steel and stone makes a powerful design statement!

The monumental example pictured be-
low  --  though very different in style from that shown at right -- makes an equally  powerful  and  impressive de-
sign statement.    Massive in size and scale,  with  a  large  stone slab for a mantel  shelf,  it  has  a  commanding presence in the room!

The rugged designs pictured below are also monumental in size and scope. The stones used in the example below, left, vary in size and shape to lend a great deal of visual and architectural interest.     The placement of large stones directly above the firebox opening,  as well as the random position-
ing  of  a few equally large stones extending upward from the mantel shelf, enhance the monumentality of the overall design. Pictured directly beneath it is a partial view of the warm and inviting Great Room that is anchored by this impressive stone hearth!

The stone fireplace pictures at right and  below  show  a design that de-
parts  dramatically  from the rugged examples above.   Less rustic in na-
ture, the design is layered to form a recess  above  the  arched   firebox.
The  stones used for the outermost facing  --  i.e.,  around  the firebox opening  --  are  precisely  cut and assembled  to  form  a  symmetrical
and  relatively smooth-textured fire-
place surround.   Echoing the curve
of  the  stone that frames the large firebox  opening   is  another  stone
arch above it.

Similarly,  the arched firebox opening pictured below, left  --  and in the image directly beneath it -- is framed by a surround of precisely cut and assembled,  smooth-faced stones.     Flanking the fireplace are identical surrounds  that  are set back slightly  --  each of which frames a pair of wooden doors that conceals a log storage area.

The stone hearth pictured below, right, is crafted from large, rectangular-
ly shaped cut stones.  Neatly stacked on top of one another, the stones project forward on either side of the firebox opening to create a cozy in-
glenook.

Following  are  two  striking river rock,  or river stone fireplace designs  -- albeit slightly different in style.  On the left, the use of river stones inter-
spersed with tiny beach pebbles forms a beautiful composition,  along with the vertical placement of river stones that follow  --  and  accentuate  --
the graceful curve of the arched firebox opening.

Similarly, vertically-oriented stones highlight the arched firebox in the de-
sign below, right.   However, unlike the former design, the river stones in this surround vary less in size and are more randomly positioned.

The stone used in the monumental design pictured below, left, is arranged in  a  random  mosaic  pattern  that  rises more than two stories in height. Taking its cue from the room's peeled log interior,  a large log mantel shelf rests on log corbels, or brackets.

Massive logs and stone slabs frame the "walk-in" fireplace pictured below, right.   Inspired by Adirondack Great Camp architecture, this rustic retreat was designed by the firm of Holmes, King, Kallquist & Associates for a client in New York's Catskill Mountains.

And finally, the monumental stone fireplace shown below is one of two in-
credible stone hearths that anchor the  Great  Room  of  this  magnificent lodge!  A massive gnarled log serves as the mantel shelf and rests on four log corbels.    A large stone lintel with a relatively smooth finish spans the top of the firebox opening and contrasts beautifully with the rustic mantel shelf and the rugged cut stone blocks that form the surround.
