Earth

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet…”

Khalil Gibran

There are too many materials of the earth to express them all in photographs:  adobe, plasters, tiles, and stone.  In Sedona, the latter is the most expressive of the nature of this place.  If costs can be prohibitive to build an entire house of rock, its ready availability still allows the use of amazing pieces of stone in key locations, rock that would be hard to come by in most places.  The use of rough hewn, natural materials of the earth can help ground houses that are more modern and balance the use of large expanses of glass in order to create warm and sheltering environments.  And of course the limitless use of colored plasters and tiles can serve the same purpose, as well as expressing the unique taste of each client.
