Francois and Co carved stone fireplaceFrancois and Co. says their product is not cast stone, not concrete, but scagliola. The website shows many stone fireplace mantels, stone columns, kitchen hoods, and custom designs. stone pedestals, stone columns, stone crown moldings, arches, interior wall treatments of stone veneer with niches. Stone Age Designs does custom work also.  Scagliola stone, unlike anything else available in the marketplace today, is skillfully formed and finished by hand, achieving a natural stone texture of amazing clarity and depth. Unlike the process used to produce common cast stone, a process involving pouring liquid concrete into molds, Scagliola Stone is developed entirely by hand.
They say that scagliola stone has the integrity, consistency and appearance of authentic stone...The word "scagliola" derives from the Italian "scaglia", which means "scales or chips of stone".
Italian monks principally developed this technique in the 17th Century, later duplicated by Italian and French craftsmen who applied Scagliola stone to many architectural applications. The formula used to achieve this authentic stone technique was kept extremely secretive, and as a result, the Italian craft had all but disappeared by the late 19th Century. I guess they have revived it.

Good Books about Architectural Stone

stone design bookHeather and Earl G. Adams, Jr. are the founders of Natural Stone Design, a specialty tile showroom on Florida's Gulf Coast. Boasting years of experience with the material, they are veterans at offering in-depth advice on designing spaces with natural stone.I was quite surprised at all the material this books covers. Anyone planning a custom designed home or remodel could certainly find great inspiration and clever ideas not usually seen in homes in the USA. Additionally, the in-depth info on various natural stone products is a real education. The last part of STONE has a helpful photo index of illustrations of the various types of stone. Since many ceramic tile products attempt to emulate natural stone, this book and especially it's fine examples of mosaics would be quite inspirational for those who work with manmade tiles as well as natural stone. I find the elegant pared down interiors in this book quite refreshing, a breath of fresh air. As a fan of classic, enduring architecture, I am pleased that this book promotes the idea of a home as a structure expected to last centuries--an unusual concept in the States.Heather Adam's STONE
