Hi Amy. Thanks for the compliment. I really enjoyed yours as well as I was looking through your photos yesterday. These are granite spheres that are imported from China. A stone yard in town carries them, but they aren't easy to find. They are also quite heavy, as you can imagine. I use a lot of spheres in my designs. They've become a bit of a brand for me and I find the shape primally soothing.
If you can't find these at a stone yard near you, I sometimes use spheres from Restoration Hardware. They have some carved lava rock spheres as well as some resin ones that are made from the lava rock moulds.
Good luck, and thanks for the question.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Practice: The Year in Review
From these simple questions, you should be able to draft the chapter heading for your year. How would the abstract read? Certain themes will likely emerge; the essence of the review process is to take note of those themes and learn from them. Decide whether those are the ones that you want to define your business moving forward. If not, the year-end pause is a good time to figure out a way to pivot and change the narrative.
