Elevating Organic Shapes in the Landscape - 182LAN265B
An expert designer blends shapes and forms—plants, pathways, sculptures, and surroundings, to create an evocative whole, resonant like a painting. Internationally recognized for his stonework, Lew French carefully combines natural materials, from lichen-encrusted granite slabs to weathered driftwood, in ways that seem both ancient and effortless. Draw inspiration from Lew as he discusses how to find proportion, scale, and balance using the organic shapes of found materials.
, an inductee of the New England Design Hall of Fame, designs and builds rooms, outdoor spaces, fireplaces, and sculptural pieces using natural materials with minimal manipulation. The author of two books, Stone by Design and Sticks and Stones, Lew has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, HGTV, and NPR, as well as in dozens of publications, including Home and Garden, Architectural Digest, and The New York Times.
