Olynyks, Nanaimo, BC:
Referred by friends, we hired Liquid Stone Studios to replace the outdated brick fireplace in our family room in 2009. The results were better than we could have imagined! Ian somehow designed a concrete fireplace to fit right over the old brick, eliminating a messy demolition. We wanted a “west coast” feel to the room, and Liquid Stone Studios delivered, with a weathered sandstone-like texture and color to the new surround, which set the tone for redecorating the entire room. Ian and his team were polite, punctual and tidy and went above and beyond our expectations. We would hire them again without hesitation.

We first met Ian Wyndlow in Qualicum at a home show in September 2009 and immediately fell in love with his work. We knew he was the one we wanted to hire to start off our huge home renovation. Ian created this beautiful masterpiece in our formal living room. A floor to ceiling concrete fireplace. It is breath taking. He even put in hidden hooks in the mantle so we could hang our stockings at Christmas, that’s attention to detail. He also did a vanity for our powder room which is another masterpiece and so personal. We had Ian embed sea glass that our kids had collected from Maui(our favourite place in the world) into the concrete countertop.
So every time you wash your hands you can see the sea glass through the glass sink. Ian even put in fibre optic lights and the sea glass lights up, it is sooo… beautiful. Ian Wyndlow was such a pleasure to work with and he was so creative. He truly is an artist in every way. He was always punctual and very patient. We often reflect back on our reno and since we had so many different companies coming through our home Liquid Stone Studios was definitely the one business that truly stands alone with their work ethic, personality, creativity and responsibility. They really stand behind their work. We would highly recommend Liquid Stone Studios. Thank you.

It’s just a very clever and beautiful piece. Ian visually changed the whole shape of a fireplace opening. The judges all agreed that he did a great job. Starting with the ammonite inlay at the center and spiraling outward with each section at a different depth, this is an inspired and exquisitely crafted interpretation of the ‘golden mean’ in concrete.

Two years of living with our kitchen countertops has only further confirmed our original choice to go with concrete—their warmth and character continues to evolve, and the more we use them, the better they get.
