Oak Leaf Fireplace
15 square feet
Tumbled onyx is the background material. Leaves, stems and checkered border are marble; acorns are made of red tiger eye. A specimen acorn is inlaid in the soapstone hearth
Crafted for a newly constructed home in the Storybook style (a charming period of the Arts and Crafts movement), this mosaic recalls the Oak trees found in the neighborhood.
