Fireplace, Mission Tejas State Park, 2008

Quarried limestone and petrified wood make up this imaginative, well-proportioned fireplace surround. Limestone blocks extend only to the top of the firebox. Smaller pieces of petrified wood set in a stylized pattern form the cap and the crest, with alternating limestone and petrified wood forming the mantel.
