Currently we don't have a showroom. This also allows us to stay on the move, constantly seeking out new materials to work with.

If you want to take a look feel free to contact us.

Yes! We sell completely unique pieces and as each is sold it is gone from our site forever. We pick and design pieces by traveling to our sources all over the world. When they are ready they go on our website and when they sell they are removed.

Petrified Wood can be treated like any other stone product. The pieces are very durable and will last more than a lifetime if they're properly cared for. You can clean and polish it just as you would any other stone and it can be used in the same places. You can leave it outside in the rain or even use a log as a stool in the shower!
Question
Answer :
We are very focused on sustainability and ecologically friendly practices! One of our founders has a graduate degree in industrial ecology which makes it at the core of most of what we do. Many of our products are recovered or reclaimed, from our woods to our metals. We also actively seek out partners who feel the same way we do and check to make sure they're following through going forward.
