Masonry Chimneys
12/15/14

"In a modern house, if there is a chimney at all, it's probably metal with a wooden or fake-brick surround. Although some wooden chimney designs work because they're designed to look as if they grew out of the house, their only function is to conceal a metal pipe. I think a metal chimney looks better by itself rather than obscured by a false front. It comes down to a question of honesty: If you perceive one aspect of a design as fake, you might assume the rest is fake too. I'd like to argue for the return of an honest chimney, one that represents the levels of design and craft that go into a house, one that identifies the house as a home." - Jeremiah Eck, Architect; Fine Hombuilding, December, 1998/January, 1999.
