The founder of Artistic Stone, Peter Maniscalco, has been involved in the natural stone business for over 33 years. Having a passion for natural stone and a love for mosaics, Peter established Artistic Stone Australia in 1993. Since then his company has grown to be the largest supplier of natural stone mosaics, borders, glass, metal tiles, medallions, and liners in Australia. With his reputation for quality, service and availability, Peter has also been recognized worldwide, especially in the United States of America.
In June of 1999, Peter Maniscalco opened his first manufacturing facility in India. In January of 2000 the first container of mosaics arrived in Australia. Due to the increasing demand for its products, Artistic Stone India expanded the company’s services and products to Italy, Singapore, China and North America.
At the end of 2003 Artistic Stone India opened its second factory. Now with over 1,000 employees in both factories, Artistic Stone is the largest manufacturer of quality slate and marble mosaics, borders and medallions in India.
January 2003, Peter Maniscalco established an office in Turkey. This gives Artistic Stone the control to create and supply fashionable, trend-setting products with on-time delivery.
In October 2003, Artistic Stone decided to expand its operations again. Having conducted a large amount of business on the East Coast of the United States, and responding to a growing demand for his products on the West Coast, Peter opened his first American warehouse, Artistic Stone Gallery in San Carlos, California.
In the fall of 2005, Artistic Stone Gallery moved from San Carlos to a 40,000 square foot facility in nearby Menlo Park. It is one of the largest mosaic, border and medallion facilities in California.
