Norwegian slate chimneys: smoke signals for aesthetics and style

Norwegian slate chimneys.

Detail in design even of a roof reveals a great deal about the home dwellers

Chimneys are usually not the center of a builder’s and architect’s focus, the reason being: except for birds and chimney sweeps – no one really sees much of them. But let us take a closer look in our photo-gallery, which we dedicated to the subject after finding a number of pictures worth a second look on the Norsk Skifer Website.

Perhaps intricately designed chimneys are a metaphoric smoke signal. The message: aesthetics and style are important.

Further on, photos of the chimney’s journey downward to ground level.

In a subsequent issue we will report in detail how a chimney turns into a fireplace.
