The Fireplace!

In 2010, Lisa and I finally came to a decision about what to do with the fireplace surround in my office. Lisa found a magazine clipping she liked. We had worked with Christina Terry, and loved her work.

We approached her about doing the project, which thrilled her. She started off doing some pencil sketching, and then progressed into a full-size mockup. This then progressed into a rough creation of foam. Christina, than rough carved the foam, and started adding the man-made product. Several days of hand sculpting and then a complete second layer of the material.

After about three weeks, the final wonderful product, of constant, creative, obsessive attention, emerged.
