Vermont Stone Mason, Sculptor, and Stone Artist.

This is my newest installation. "Fitting In" (III) It's in the high desert of California, in the cool town of Joshua Tree. The sculpture is made of reclaimed concrete, wooden timbers, and copper.

This is a project I started at the end of August last year. It's a garage that will look like an English cottage when completed. The stone is from Chester, Vermont. Each stone has been cut, drilled, and split on site. In order to work through a Vermont winter I had to build a tent and install forced hot air heaters.
