For many years the Andrusko Group has been fabricating unique, natural stone feature elements for residential, commercial and public clients.
These feature stones fall into a few defined categories, such as: Fire Features, Water Features, Landscape Features, and outdoor furniture like: Seats, Benches and Tables.
The largest, most complex|ambitious pc. to date was certainly the fabrication of the Fish Cleaning Station sourced, built and installed for the Confluence Project & designed by world-renowned artist Maya Lin at Cape Disappointment State Park in Southwestern Washington State in 2006. The L|Arch team of Greenworks, PC located in Portland, OR managed and developed the site.
This work was followed up with another equally challenging project designed by Tacoma native & Artist | E.G. Designer George Lim for the Tacoma Chinese Reconciliation Park Tableau Stone grouping completed in 2010.
Both of these projects can be viewed in more detail in the Public Art section of this website.
The One North Building plaza in Portland, Oregon was completed late Summer of 2015 and features a number of stone elements designed by the L|Arch firm of Lango-Hanson.
Currently under discussion is the dramatic and iconic reconstruction of the Seward Park Torii Gate in Seattle. It is an amazing project concept designed by Northwest artist Scott Murase. You can read more about it here. It is currently in the final process of being fully funded and implemented. The Andrusko Group has been consulting with the Murase Associates, L|Arch team for the past few years was recently involved in the creation of a 1in = 1ft scale model to prove the viability of the design and fabrication approach for the project. I am very much looking forward to being considered for the commission to fully implement the design by the Friends of Seward Park.
In early 2007 an enormous, Japanese-made wire saw was purchased and erected at a studio location set up by the Andrusko Group in Oregon City, OR to fabricate natural stone feature stones and finished stone products. The saw and studio were in operation for approx. 5 years before being decommissioned in the aftermath of the economic downturn.
The saw was sold to Gregg & Ms. Paull, owners of Guinette Masonry located Vancouver, WA where it has found a welcome and productive home in the hands of a master craftsman and mason.
You can view numerous examples of the natural stone feature work of the Andrusko Group Studio, including a number of finished elements that are currently available for purchase.
