Mixed Media "Rock Blocks" are the culmination of our commitment to "functional art." Our makers work with river stones, wood and resin to produce a stunning and practical vessel that keeps knives conveniently at hand while transforming the kitchen into an aesthetic space.

Kolana Rock

This knife block is named for Kolana Rock, a prominent granite dome located along the southern edge of Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park. According to park steward and advocate John Muir, Kolana was the Native American name for the rock. It towers 2,000 feet above Yosemite's Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.
