Welcome to Canadian Shield Granite
Our works provided within have all been hand-crafted by us in our home here in Northern Ontario. All the granite used in our products is found in the Canadian Shield regions of Ontario, including Muskoka, Parry Sound and Algonquin. We then cut the granite with a diamond saw to various sizes and hand polish with up to 14 different diamond grits to achieve the final natural polish. We suggest that you use mineral oil (a few drops and then wipe off with a soft cloth) to enhance the colour and natural shine.
Our paintings are hand-painted on a variety of different materials, including granite. We try to embrace the natural tones and patterns that prevail in the material, using the natural grain to define the final painting, truly making every piece different and individually inspired. We hope you enjoy what you discover herein and please feel free to contact us if you need any further information.
