Kiva Style: Former Tipi Residents Build a Rammed-Earth Home

Working with earth, wood, glass and crystals, Tom and Flame Lutes have created a truly sacred space in the Colorado high country.

In the bathroom, Tom and Flame worked side by side with a con­tractor, adorning a free-form bathtub with tiles and stones collected from the property and during their travels in San Diego, Santa Fe, Mexico, and Greece. They cemented crystals into the mix to act as towel and robe holders.
