granite lanterns, basins and sculptures are one the most recognized and
visually stimulating element in a Japanese garden. Granite is a very
dense, durable and a hard natural stone. Items carved from granite will
last a life time and many times passed on for many generations to come,
thus when choosing granite select only high quality granite that is
carved with high quality workmanship. We take great pride in offering
only high quality carved granite items. Rest assured, when you receive
one of our granite sculptures you will have as much pride in the
sculpture as we do.
Selecting a Lantern Size
Choose a size that is appropriate to your garden. Visualize the items
size in both height, width and the appearance in its intended garden
placement. A small garden with an oversized lantern will feel
overbearing and a large garden with a lantern that is too small will
feel un-proportional. If you are not sure, use objects around the home
or garden as props to get a better feel for the size.
Selecting a Basin Size
Choose a size that is appropriate to your garden and its
surroundings. Also choose a size that is proportional to other nearby
objects such as a granite lantern or a tree. Visualize the items size
and the appearance in its intended garden placement. To easily visualize
the diameter, mark the ground with a circle of the size of the basin in
which you are interested in. For reference we have included some basic
suggestions. Our 18" basin is a nice size for small and medium sized
gardens. Our 2' basin is perfect for medium to very large gardens.
