Little Mountain Stoneworks is the studio of stone carver and artist, Emma Levitz. Little Mountain Stoneworks initially opened in 2018, named after a small mountain peak near Emma's first home and studio in the Upper Cumberland, and it is currently located in Cookeville, TN.
Emma Levitz works primarily in marble, limestone, and soapstone to create functional pieces for the home and sculptures. Her functional work is inspired by fossils and other organic forms in nature and her sculptural work explores aspects of psychology, dreams, disorders, and memory.
Little Mountain Stoneworks carvings are made from natural stone, mostly limestone and marble. The stone primarily comes from Tennessee Marble Company and is quarried in the United States, most often from Tennessee, Vermont, Georgia, and Alabama. Carvings are generally made from upcycled slabs and blocks that are too small or funky to be used for architectural & industrial purposes and would otherwise be discarded.
