Milky QuartzMilky quartz can be found just about everywhere. It is quite common. So common in fact, it is crushed up and use in composite countertops and for landscaping (often in commercial areas). It's an extremly hard stone only second to diamond. For me, it's beauty is found in its milky white color and simple yet contrasting black and brown grain.
This Milky Quartz pattern adorns a 7" Solid Beech Bowl (10 available in this series). Intricate turns of White, Milky Grey/White and Black.
AgateAgates have a special place in my heart. As a young girl I would spend days with family traversing the gravel pits and dirt roads hunting for agates big and small. Picking rocks large and small. Using a drop of spit to uncover their true beauty. Now my children are learning the joys of the hunt from their grandmother as our agate collections grow.
Agate pattern adorns a 6" Solid Beech Bowl (10 available in this series). Bright Orangy-Red, Clear and veins of White replicate the unique beauty of this stone.
Smoky QuartzTranslucent and sparkly, this common mineral sparkles in the sun like a true crystal although much more common. The warm modern smoky color is what draws me to this stunning stone.
This Smoky Quartz pattern adorns a 6" Solid Walnut wood bowl (10 available in this series). Sparkling swirls of gold flow through the clear rubber dip enhancing the incredible depth of this rich Walnut wood.
SandstoneI am always drawn to sandstone for it's contrasting layers that seem to stack like layers of a cake, each telling a different story of the past. The colors are so earthy and warm, the perfect mix in my opinion.
This Sandstone pattern adorns a 12" Solid Oak wood bowl (5 available in this series). Contrasting streaks of chocolate brown and white cross this bowl of mostly pink. The golden Oak wood is bold in grain.
SlateBold and beautiful, what more is there to say. Slate is often used in a rustic atmosphere as it can be cut into thin sheets and used as flooring or roofing.
GraniteWell known for its use as countertops, headstones and building facades, granite is extremely hard due to its high Quartz content. It's beauty truly shines through once it has been polished and it's depth is discovered.
This Granite pattern adorns a 7" Solid Walnut wood bowl (10 available in this series). The textured rose color feels much like that of an unrefined stone. Swirls of milky grey, black and white give depth to the deep rich brown of the Walnut wood.
