Limestone business card for the Indiana Limestone Company in Bedford, IN: “My late grandfather Hale Olson owned multiple brick companies near Chicago, and this was found in his desk. He built us a large sandbox when we were young and would have fresh sand delivered from his company regularly, and he also made us a large toybox filled with custom-made, hand-sanded wooden blocks. I named my design practice after him as he was highly influential in my upbringing. Ending up living in Indiana made this object that much more special to me.”
