Garden Gate: Episode 161 – Madoc Rocks and Quarry Cut designs

Father daughter team of Nick and Samantha Butts create both coasters and necklaces from the same locally sourced rock.

Madoc Rocks is a family run business established in 2002. Their coasters are hand crafted with rock from the Madoc area, in Eastern Ontario. The unique patterns and colours in each coaster are an indication of the mineral diversity of the area, which is located at the edge of the Canadian Shield.

With an eye towards recycling unused pieces of the rock, Quarry Cut Designs was born. Using the same Canadian Shield rock, these one of a kind necklaces capture the beauty of their stone on a fun, bold canvas.

Their businesses evolved from an interest in nature and rocks, and a lifelong passion for artistic expression. There is beauty and art inherent in the rock itself; they simply bring this beauty to the surface.

Coasters are available individually and custom designs can be created for conferences, weddings or other important milestone events. Necklaces and coasters are each one of a kind.
