Japanese tradition, contemporary design: Since 1989, Stone Forest has created unparalleled hand-carved granite sculptures that combine the elegant simplicity of Japanese style with contemporary design. We create all of our own sculptures and water fountains, ranging from traditional Japanese lanterns to monolithic fountains. Enjoying a passionate response in residential and commercial sites worldwide, our functional sculpture includes hand carved granite benches, stone birdbaths, fire vessels, and interior accents. In addition to our functional sculpture, we offer a variety of granite fountains. Most of our basins can be converted into fountains as well; including our traditional Japanese basins or more rustic old-world planter basins.
The integrity of granite gives Stone Forest carvings a radiant mass or presence not realized using man-made materials such as cement or cast stone. Since each piece is hand-carved using a hammer and chisel, the individual character of the rock, as well as the inspiration of the stonecutter, lend each sculpture a unique quality. Stone Forest has also been carving custom designs for residential and commercial projects for over 30 years. Our ability to collaborate with the design community and execute quality custom work is without parallel.
