History

 

I envisioned a beautiful and practical backyard granite wall––pin and feather split–– that would provide comfortable seating. I sourced the stone, and with a few other guys set the pieces of granite to build my vision; the wall and two garden benches.

 

As neighbors visited they told me how much they admired my creation. One neighbor, a landscape architect said, “Wow, that’s inspiring!” I began to collect other stones with unusual shape, color and texture and alas, “Inspired Stones” was born.

 

Now we build one-of-a-kind benches and tables from reclaimed natural materials: stone, wood, and iron. For example, a memorial bench as a touchstone and celebration of life, or a sculpted fieldstone bench with granite legs now sit in a pine grove along a brook. We also source stone for gardens, courtyards, and entranceways to simply move your soul and bring you joy. One customer for example, purchased “Wing,” a piece of pink and gray, hand-split granite that is contoured and textured to suggest movement, now displayed on the hillside entranceway to his home. For another customer, we sourced a six foot granite post that we drilled from north to south producing a 1 ¼” vertical hole. The vintage piece is vaulted and featured in his business courtyard and used as a fountain.
