Stacked Stone Fireplace Pictures
High and Dry!

The stacked stone fireplace pictures shown here feature soaring floor-to-ceiling designs crafted from a variety of stone types in a wide range
of exciting styles and configurations.   Employing the dry stone method, the stones are stacked horizontally and rely on the weight of the stones and friction between each stone for strength and architectural integrity.

Technically  "mortarless,"   the stones used to build
a stacked stone hearth -- though assembled tightly together -- sometimes allow for  a  very narrow mortared bed joint that is raked back deeply into the stone work so the  mortar is undetectable.

As shown in the following fireplace pictures,  this method of construc-
tion  can be used to create a wide
and  varied range of differing looks
. . . . . for both indoor rooms  AND outdoor rooms (right).

A painstaking, time-intensive endeavor, there is no mistaking the end prod-
uct for what it truly is: a superbly crafted -- often veritable -- work of art! And few, if any, do it better than Lew French. One of today's foremost dry stone artisans,  the  carefully  conceived  and  flawlessly executed designs created  by  him  are  only  hinted at in the two remarkable stone fireplace pictures that follow.
