The rocky coast of Salt Point is our favorite place in the world, a constant font of inspiration. The constant madness of the ocean has eroded the rocks into variegated, alien shape. Every time we go there, we see different creatures and patterns and tables and stories in the rocks.
This place obviously inspired San Franciscans many decades ago, when they began cutting stones for the roads of the great city. While we would never want to carve away the beauty, we wouldn’t mind being able to mimic some of textures.
But is one thing to see something amazing, and another to create it. Something that took millions of years to develop is not something we can copy in a few experiments. And yet we must try, and hopefully we’ll see some worthy tables in the near future.
