Perfection was achieved with these basalt slab benches from Stone Forest. And this is by no means an overstatement. The benches are made out of polished basalt, a type of volcanic rock that requires over a million years to achieve natural oxidization. Stone Forest shows appreciation towards nature and works with the original shape of the stone. The process implies carving the bench out of solid blocks of basalt. While the top seating surface is flawlessly polished, the sides retain its rough finish. The final product reveals a first-class design and excellent appearances. Dimensions vary from six to eight feet in length, but custom sizes will be produced if requested. Want an extra shine added to your landscape? Nothing can be more captivating out there in the garden than a strange light reflected of the basalt slab bench from Stone Forest.

If you ever thought of having a multifunctional concrete vessel around the house, Deborah Brackenbury has created the perfect product. The Impure Vessels are hand-made and come in a variety of colored patterns. If you wonder what makes them so special, it is the process that consists in layering, hand-rolling and hand-cutting colors of concrete. Then, the green concrete is wet-carved and all the colored pieces fit into it. It is because of the concrete that these vessels can be used both inside and outdoors. If you want to make a fruit arrangement on them, you can do it without any worries, because a food-safe waterproof sealant is used for the finish. Other functions? Sure: serving platters, vases, birdbaths or any other decorative design. To purchase concrete vessels, contact Deborah Brackenbury at dbrackenbury @ cox.net or 405-360-8662.
