An American designer of furniture and furnishings, Brenda Houston has long been inspired by the beauty of “nature’s artwork.” Her personal collection of minerals and gemstones, some more than one hundred million-years old, have been sourced from around the globe.
Houston introduced her collection when she realized the dearth of realistic interpretations of stones and minerals. She soon found out how incredibly difficult it is to capture the clarity and detail of these organic materials and have the ability to scale them up to reveal their beauty in a clear and concise manner.
“We discovered that the stones would take on new designs depending upon whether they were sliced horizontally or vertically. Some pieces are no larger than your thumbnail, but the quality shines through in the digital images.”
