Classic Rock

Lay the foundation for a productive day at the office when you clear the clutter and display your everyday business essentials in style with this set of three reclaimed granite desk toppers. The card holder contains a slot for a stack of business cards, the pen holder bears a standard-size opening to keep your favorite writing tool within reach, and the paperclip holder conceals a magnet made of various rare earth elements to attract to runaway paperclips. Each rounded object in the trio is drilled from a solid, perfectly smooth 1" x 1.5" granite slab and backed with felt to protect surfaces. Handmade in New Hampshire.
Pen and paperclips not included.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Arra David and Anne Johnson

Arra David and Anne Johnson are longtime New England rockhounds. Their love for Mother Nature's artwork in stone and hardwood inspires them to handcraft functional creations that bring the outdoors in. They craft each piece with attention to detail, quality, and respect for nature.

Working with stone calls for custom fixtures and techniques. Arra is an engineer and serial inventor, while Anne is an artist with a keen eye for balance and harmony. Together, they blend the endless varieties of nature's materials into pieces that decorate homes and will keep generations connected to their environment.

To keep our beaches and forests as they are, Anne and Arra "plant" a new quarry stone in the water to replace each one gathered, and they plant ten times the number of trees harvested for their work. collection

      Comments about GRANITE DESK TOPPERS:

      I'm a manger with 8 employees under my supervision, both male and female. I wanted a Christmas gift that would be appropriate and relevant to everyone. And, I'm always looking for something unique. Lastly, it had to be in my price range, since I needed so many.We all work at desks, but in different places; some in an office, some at home. These fit the bill perfectly. I got very good reactions from the recipients. Everyone was impressed with them. One told me later that it brings a little nature to her work day and she keeps her prayer card in the one meant for business cards.

            The granite desk toppers are a good conversation starter. They are functional as well as decorative. This would make a good gift for anyone stuck at a desk.

                Bought these as an employee recognition gift and everyone loved them. We put some meaning behind them and explained how each one is different, and the meaning of 'granite' and the relevence to our team. Went over great!

                Service and delivery comments:

                Very prompt delivery and customer service response. Two of the sets were packaged incorrectly. We were sent two new sets, and I have since ordered more!

                  I work at a granite fabrication shop and for Boss's day I wanted to get my boss something useful but unique. These were perfect and my boss really liked them! I just wish they had a bit more of a polished finish but they were a nice little office gift :)

                    Bought these to float on a Levitron World Stage, works well, just the right size & weight. More size info in the product description would have been nice.
