Coming to the stone industry via studies in art and design at SCAD where I first fell in love with this material, I approach stone design with an artistic eye developed from years working in museums and galleries curating and installing exhibitions. I carve sculptures in marble and granite which continues to deepen my connection with natural stone. Cutting and fabricating slabs and blocks, working with architects and designers and managing complex installations are an extension of my hands-on skills in the industry and the studio. I enjoy expressing the beauty, and telling the story, of natural stone to convey its timeless message, ranging from the quarry to your finished design and everywhere in between.

Dream Beach House Uses Blue and Vetrazzo Surfaces In All The Right Places

Posted by Steven Schrenk

Nestled in between the beach and the sound is a picturesque barrier island in North Carolina aptly named Figure Eight Island. This coastal southern paradise is an ocean lover’s dream and a creative inspiration, thanks to its vibrant blue waters that sparkle in the sun, nearly white sands and pops of lush green vegetation scattered around the island. In fact, the natural beauty of the colorful seascape was exactly what inspired the designer Lindsey Cheek of Gathered, a full-service interior design firm and shop in Wilmington, North Carolina, when she was called on to design one of the beachfront homes.
