This asymmetrical fireplace by Lew French has a sculptural feel. The big stones are from an abandoned quarry, and the small stones are fieldstone.
French created this sculpture in 2012 for a client he began working with 20 years ago.
The client's wife liked French's sculpture so much that she asked him to create another. He made this one climbable for their grandchildren.
