Stone has been called the bones of the earth, and from it we shape the skeleton of the landscape. Rough, lichen-covered boulders hold up a hillside thick with blueberry bushes, cut granite blocks form a wall. Stone provides more than structure, it gives color and texture, a warm spot to doze in the sun, a cool path underfoot.
Our designs use native granite in a variety of forms — glacier-rounded, weather-worn boulders, hand-split slabs, and rough-sawn pavers. We love to work with the ledge itself in all those places it pushes its gruff shoulders through the thin coat of Maine soil.
“a seat which is also a sculpture or a sculpture which may be sat on. The experience of sculpture is not only by sight. The tactile quality of sculpture is surely as important as the visual to cause thought.”
