Where to get Marble and granite bases for bronze

Does anyone know where I can get a good selection of marble and or granite bases for smallish 18" to 24" bronze sculpture in the U.S.A? Round or oval. I like the kind with the turnstile and and the two tiered look is nice as well. I've tried the base shop in loveland but they don't have the thick 1.5 too 2" granite available.
Thanks!

Hi A.J
try this, call them and see what they can do and if they cant do it they usually can find someone who can, good luck.

I have bought from here. Prices are very reasonable, the lowest I've found.
The marble bases have some white in them. The granite doesn't. They will drill holes for you and ship in 1-2 days. No custom sizes though.

A.J. -

Being a stone worker primarily, I sometimes do special/custom bases for other sculptors if you tell me what you ware looking for I can let you know what I might be able to do for you and give you a quote . . . but I ain't the cheapest on the block.

Re: Where to get Marble and granite bases for bronze

I am looking for 1 1/2" thick marble or granite 14" round with a beveled edge and a turnstile. I like the rojo marble from the base shop's (www.thebaseshop.com) online stone samples page but they don't have that thickness. I'm hoping to get quantity discounts when I finally find the right supplier. If I can't find that exact color than something in that deep rust tone.

i have been purchasing marble bases from lionel hastings & company. they have a good and varied selection of bases in size, color, thickness and shapes. their prices are very reasonable. the only down side i found was they can't do customized work other than drilling a hole in the base. their website is www.lionelhastingsmarble.com
