Sea Stones Have Arrived!

Sea Stones bring the beauty of nature into homes, while still leaving our shores and forests unchanged. They gather stones from private rivers and beaches, with permission. When a stone is collected, they 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 ‘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. They also plant 10 times the number of trees They use each year for our back plates.
Bringing natural materials indoors as functional art keeps all of us in harmony with Mother Earth.
