Project - Terra Piedra

Terra Piedra Website and Brochure

Terra Piedra was what I named this vast collection of rare and giant semi-precious stones and gem specimens after being awarded the job to create a name for the collection, a website and brochure.  These pieces have been discovered and gathered from all over the world by two Houston physicians who took up the hobby of collecting them over 50 years ago.

The stones and gems were warehoused in downtown Houston with no air-conditioning and lighting conditions were fluorescent bulbs hanging from the ceiling.  I first set about photographing each piece.

This is a giant, unprocessed citrine quartz, five feet tall and 500 pounds

After correction for color, lighting and distortion from camera angle

Interiors were sourced that brought the pieces into proper scale
