Today’s spotlight is on Al Epstein. Check his website www.deqote.com for more.

He makes stone picture frames and mirrors from cleft bluestone in naturally infinite colors and textures. This 400 million year old Paleozoic stone is quarried in the Northern Poconos and Southern Catskills, where he lives and works, and handcrafts them in standard sizes from 4×6 to 11×14. Some are even heavier than 10 lbs!
