Why you should always opt for natural stone

This week's episode is jam packed with information and inspiration.  I'm talking with Steve Schrenk, a sculptor and media director for Polycor, the largest natural stone quarrier in North America.  We cover a lot of ground, starting with Steve's training and his personal love affair with stone, and then he teaches us about the different kinds of stone you might want to consider using in your own home, how to use stone as a design element, where to find it, what kinds of quarries it comes from and the environmental impact of extraction.  We wrap up with two of his favorite installations, one of which you can go visit when in you're in New York City.
