We collect with permission from private rivers and beaches all over New England. When we collect a stone, we want to make sure there will always be a replacement for future gatherers. So we purchase stones from a quarry, and for each stone we harvest, we ‘plant’ a new stone in the water. Over the years, the water tumbles the rough ‘seed’ into a smooth, rounded stone. We source hardwoods from sawyers who support the Forest Stewardship Council, an international woodland conservation group. Plus, each year Sea Stones plants ten times the number of trees we use to create our work.
We gather stones from private rivers and beaches, with permission. When a stone is collected, we want to make sure there will always be a replacement for future gatherers. So for each one harvested, a new stone (purchased from a quarry) is planted in the water. Over the years, the water tumbles the rough â€˜seed' into a smooth, rounded stone.
In the same spirit, hardwoods are supplied by responsible sawyers committed to conservation and the future of our forests. We also plant 10 times the number of trees we use each year for our backplates.
Bringing natural materials indoors as functional art keeps all of us in harmony with Mother Earth.
