Beautiful Internal Fireplace using Fruitland’s Schist Stone
This beautiful stone detailed internal fireplace was put together by Josh O’Connor a stonemason from Stone Creations in Auckland (of which he owns).
A tight stacked stone style was used to create this look with the guillotine 180mm cut fruit lands schist stone cladding from Central Otago.
The Fruitland’s Schist Stone that was used is recessed/raked which has the mortar gently brushed out of the joints, this gives the fireplace more shadow and texture.
In this order Josh was after a bag of stack stone (used for the body of the fireplace) and corner stones which are cut at right angles that allowed for the edge pieces of the fireplace.
This is a fine example of what an experience stonemason can do with the stone provided by Alexandra Stone.
