Stone Basins & Granite Pillars

StoneHouse Artifacts wouldn’t be living up to it’s name if we didn’t offer a selection of granite and stone items for outdoor landscaping and designers. We carry a large inventory of stone pillars- columns from the Chettinad region of Tamil Nadu, India. They can used singularly by themselves, or together when creating a garden trellis. Being granite they will last forever. Our granite basins are popular when used in conjunction with a granite watercourse-Yoni’s as low water features in the garden and even as bird baths. They can sit above ground exposing all the patina of the hand carving or partially buried to appear as small water features in your garden. Granite rice-grain grinders make another great bird bath and are great even as planters.
