Artisanship is a discipline in which practical elements of everyday life are heightened and made special by the efforts of skilled craftsmen who express more than purely practical elements to their designs, but include a level of artistry too. In the home this can extend to furniture and kitchenware, but the centerpiece of any living room is the fire surround. James Edmonson Fire Surrounds creates amazing hearths from natural materials, and has just shared updates on the latest work in progress to be added to their range. —
The posts, made over the past several weeks, show the raw materials being cut and arranged, and give the first glimpses as to how they will interact. The long straight lines of the design already begin to juxtapose the organic mottling of the stone itself, which contrasts across the materials used in both colour and grain.
This latest work in progress will be added to the range, which already includes the Shelby, Tre, and Otto, works that combine classical stone with modern design elements, stark contrasts and sharp lines. Of the fire surrounds created so far, the new one seems to be the most neo-classical to date.
A spokesperson for JamesEdmondsonFireSurrounds.com explained, “We are excited to share our work in progress with our select audience who value and appreciate the craftsmanship of creating stonework centerpieces for the living room. So many living rooms are now centered on the television, but many believe in returning a sense of spectacle to the hearth. James does just that, by creating pieces that have true artistry to them. This latest piece is a departure from his established style, but is created using the same values and disciplines of the previous pieces, making it an exciting development for those looking for an exclusive fire surround.”
