This unique and durable paper towel holder is made from hand-collected beach stones, aluminum, and upcycled granite. It features a stone-topped arm that allows you to tear a single sheet at a time using only one hand. The heavy granite base, finished with soft feet to protect your countertop, ensures the Holder will not move while you use it. A perfect accent for any contemporary or beach-style kitchen.
About the Artisans: Arra David and Anne Johnson have long revered the treasures of New England’s forests and seacoast. Working with stone calls for custom fixtures and techniques and Arra puts his skills as an engineer and furniture maker to use in the Sea Stones business. Anne is an artist with a keen eye for balance and harmony. Together, they strive to stay true to a “green” philosophy, and do so in many ways.
When they collect a stone they make sure there is a replacement for future generations. So they purchase stones from a quarry and for each stone they harvest they “plant” a new stone in the water, so that over time the sharp edges will erode. They salvage granite countertop remnants, otherwise bound for the landfill, from local fabricators to create all of their polished stone work. Also they source hardwoods from sawyers who support the Forest Stewardship Council, and they eliminate plastic as a component in all of their products.
