Stone Arts of Alaska operates two stone yard/studio facilities.
Open from late-May to mid-September, our Craig, Alaska facility
serves as both our selling venue and the base of our Alaskan stone collecting efforts. Much
of our stone comes from remote islands in southeast Alaska and is
gathered by boat.
Looking for Stone in
our 14' skiff. And, from our 24' Sadie May. We have
hauled a lot of stone in these two boats. We also prospect by canoe,
see top left of page. We
may be the world's only stone operation that collects in such an
Stone Arts of Alaska proudly finds
and extracts its own stone. Finding our own stone is central to what
we do, to our philosophy of doing things. We find our own because we
like it that way.
Note: we always collect with the
utmost sensitivity to the environment. We aim for no negative impact
what-so-ever. Most of our stone comes from the Tongass National
Forest and is collected by permit.
From late September to late May, we
are at our Bellingham, Washington "winter home." This is our primary production center. We ship raw stone from Alaska, via container
and barge, to Bellingham, where we make items to be sold in Craig.
In Bellingham, too, we display our collections of crystals, fossils,
lapidary stones, and "viewing stones." Visitors are welcome.
