We are all making adjustments in how we do business and more importantly how we live our lives. Perhaps as artists and visionaries the time has come more than ever to set a new standard of living "correctly", with style. I am a landscape designer that has specialized in water wise gardens for almost 20 years. I have always been a bit ahead of my time, but the time is now. "Mother nature doesn't do bailouts". I feel strongly that water will be in the not to distant future "he new gold", and we have an opportunity to conserve in creative ways.
I use about $.48 a day for water at my house which comes to roughly $12.50 a month.
I have openings in my schedule to create a garden for you or your client. You can get a sampling of my work by going to my flickr site at:
Urbanscapes is the name of my company. Feel free to call us @ 818-773-1992!

Thanks Vanessa for the great Designers Networking Group! We will see you at the upcoming meeting.

C7 Studio has a new line of hand carved California stone...

Large sculptural quartzite fragments are hand carved by the artist collective C7 Studio in the high desert of California. The carving stone is gathered on the studio property and utilized in its found form. The rough Quartzite is collected by the artists, which is much more environmentally sound than quarrying. Inspired by architectural fragments they had created museum mounts for several years ago, the artisans decided to create a body of carvings that resemble fragments of bygone eras. The shape of the rough quartzite fragment determines the design that is carved onto it. The carved patterns are inspired by designs from cultures all over the world.

A custom museum quality mount is created in-studio for each stone carving. Most of the steel used to create the bases is salvaged from demolition sites. Each gallery stand is patinaed and given a lustrous oiled bronze appearance to complement the natural appearance of the carved stone

You can currently find C7 Studio's hand carved Quartzite fragments in Los Angeles and online at:
