Description

Museum Rock Products was founded in 1999, established a web presence in 2000, and is a "design and build" company that works with commercial and residential clients both, to create the most naturalistic artifical rock environments in the United States. We are detail-oriented and place great emphasis on design. The hands-on owner of the business, has decades of formal art training and experience. Although MuseumRock tries to keep its business relationships small and personable to remain "hands-on, " they have worked with museums and private clients alike, in the US and abroad, creating rock features budgeted up to $2.5 M.


Company description
The founder of the company, Forest Boone, actively participates in every project, still today, out of sheer passion. His formal education and training is that of the Visual Arts, with a concentration in mold making, sculpture, and geology. His assistants, from as few as one to as many as seventeen, are also often trained visual artists. This is what distinguishes MuseumRock from the vast majority of other artificial rock or rock and waterscape companies.

What does this mean to our clients? It means that from the design stage to completion a strong emphasis is placed on naturalistic aesthetics, and geological accuracy, in order to ensure that the completed rock feature convinces the viewer that what they are seeing was most assuredly formed in the earth by Mother Nature, and ususally done so monolithically.

MuseumRock Products is detail-oriented and places great emphasis on design. All of our designs begin with this premise: nature demonstrates a never-ending cycle of decay and transformation. We represent this natural cycle by visually communicating natural processes like geo-morphous, talus breaks, moss and lichen growth, wind and water gaps, etc. After we infuse our walls with life-plants in planting crevices, vines, raw earth, supplimental rock fragments, and organic colorants, the critical viewer's disbelief is thereby suspended.

Our clients determine exactly how detailed you want your artificial rock work and we will add those features, just as you specify. Generally (but not always) the more you decide to invest, the more convincing your final installation will be, since layering takes time, and skilled labor requires a menetary investment. Our cast rock features often originate from casts taken directly from rock faces, precisely as they are found in nature. Every fissure, geologic shelf, and crevice, translates to reflect a photocopied exactness.
