Custom Stone Fireplaces Rock!

Custom stone fireplaces, with their naturally striking variations in stone size, shape, color and texture, never cease to amaze us with their notably individualized looks. Combine a designer's keen eye with a stone artisan's skilled hands . . . . . and the possibilities for creating a uniquely personal-
ized hearth are virtually endless!

The stunning designs at right and di-
rectly  below  provide  a sampling of what can be achieved with a custom stone  fireplace  surround.    Master
stone artisan Lew French is the  ex-
traordinary  talent  behind  each  of these.

Created  by  Mother Earth and rear-
ranged by human hands,  a  custom stone fireplace  is truly a joint artis-
tic  effort between man and nature. Solid   and   substantial,   a   stone
hearth  reflects stability and securi-
ty . . . . . just as  the  great  stone fortifications   around   a   medieval
town  or village provided a sense of comfort  and  security for its inhabi-
tants many centuries ago.

Stone, as an artistic medium, has been used for at least as long as it has been employed as a building material . . . . . often  simultaneously . . . as shown in the picturesque designs that follow  --  also created by Lew French.

Mosaic Masterworks

In the hands of a master stone artisan, there appear to be few limitations to its use as a decorative element.    The stone mosaic designs pictured below  were  created  by  Robert Pierson of Pierson Masonry,  located  in California's Sierra Nevada Mountain region.    Meticulously detailed,  each handcrafted design employs a variety of  stone  types,  including  ledger stone, quartz, limestone and granite.

Mix it Up

The juxtaposition of varying sizes, shapes and colors of rock is what makes a custom stone hearth so interesting . . . . . and striking.  Though carefully arranged,  the  best examples look as if they were effortlessly "thrown to-
gether," such as the outstanding custom hearths that follow.
