Frank Lloyd Wright holds a special place in our hearts. His architecture is prominent in Chicago, where our CEO Gloria grew up and also in the small town of Edwardsville where Statue.com calls home.

Although well known for architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright contributed so much more to the world of aesthetics. His attention to detail is paralleled to none. We admire the way Frank Lloyd Wright was able coordinated design elements that ran central through his projects. From planters to sculptures Frank Lloyd Wright coordinated it all.

As I look ahead to the new school year for my children, one a college student turning 21 in two weeks (heaven help me, not a child any longer), and the other entering 10th grade, I’m thinking   too about their teachers.

I wondered, what products do we offer here at Statue.com that express appreciation for this difficult, absolutely critical job?  When it comes time to remember a special teacher that has become important  to your child, 12 or 21, here are a couple of great gift ideas that caught my fancy. 

Stepping stones say a lot both visually and metaphorically. As we step into a new school year,  in essence we  are telling our children: “Take this next path”.  “Try on these new ideas and experiences”, encourages the teacher.  The visual designs of the stepping stones we offer is very broad.  Perhaps you feel the intended recipient would prefer a modern, clean-lined look, then I encourage you to consider the interesting stones in the Frank Lloyd Wright collection below.

 In a completely different mood, are whimsical fairytale designs that I’m imagining a literature teacher would absolutely fall in love with.  I’m pretty good at using my own imagination!
