Welcome to the world of Flagstones.
Flagstone is a sedimentary rock that is split into layers along bedding planes. It is a generic flat stone (flag), usually used for paving slabs or walkways, patios, fences and roofing. It may be used for memorials, headstones, facades and other constructions. The name possibly derives from Middle English flagge meaning turf, perhaps from Old Norse flaga meaning slab or chip.
Els utilizes flagstones as a canvas for her paintings. These can be used as stable or home signs, or simply a piece of art in the livingroom.
They are also a very popular prize at shows or as a corporate or promotional gift.
All painted stones can have a matte or a glossy weather resistant finish if so requested and there is a large variety of colors and shapes of flagstone to choose from.
Els makes designs on demand while there is some artwork in stock if a more generic flagstone is what you seek.
If you want your dog, horse or any other pet or person immortalized on a beautiful large flagstone, feel free to contact Els.
Below you will find some examples of Els' work. Enjoy !
