Some of that stuff took months and months and months to build. Not because of any other reason other then he is nuts. Most of us live in the making money for a living real world. But it is cool to see what someone with OCD for masonry can build . It is 1 of a kind.

I thought this was pretty cool. I was looking for some Andy Goldsworthy work to share. He uses stone as an artform as well, probably my favorite drywaller, and this site had some of his work, some of Lew Frenchs and......some of Stonecutters work (Matt Sevigny)!!!! Quite the honour to be included in their ranks I'd say

I'm sure he makes plenty of money and probably only works part of the year and not many long days and sips tea at lunch. :laughing: That's what artists do ya know.

Great stuff. If I had it to do all over I would like to do that type of work. However, now I'm getting older, tired, and wore out and picking up rocks all day doesn't seem like that much fun.

That is a cool site. I'll check it out thoroughly when I get home. I've met some of those Rocknockers through The Stone Foundation and DSWAC.
I stayed at Eric Landman's farm last year. He built that beautiful Memorial "tree"wall in memory of his wife. Also the stone "black house" is on his farm. His kids run a vegetable co-op out of it.
