Arra David and Anne Johnson have long revered the treasures of New England' forests and seacoast. Mother Nature's work ranges from the brilliance of hardwoods artfully coloring autumn's landscapes... to the ever-changing granite cliffs shaped by crashing waves along the shorelines... to the delicate intricacies of a smooth sea stone comfortably nestled in a bed of sand. These stirring images have inspired Sea Stones since 2009.
Arra's creative spirit,mind and hands fashion ways to transform these natural materials into well-designed, innovative works of art. Anne's astute attention to detail, quality and respect for the earth are felt in each piece. By cherishing lifetime spent immersed in the unique beauty and charm of this region, they have gracefully conveyed the outdoor essence of New England indoors as decorative, inventive and purposeful art creations.
Nature's enduring forces of sun, wind, rain and mighty waves provide the materials. Sea Stones brings the human elements of care, compassion and respect for the environment by creating each unique piece by hand in harmony with nature's gifts.
Made in New Hampshire, The Granite State.
