Landscape Oriented Stonework

Last Year I has the opportunity to help repair a section of Opus 40, as a part of a large international team of skilled dry stone masons.

I was able to help out with four days of labor. The temperature was hot, the stone was heavy, and scafolding was tall, but through teamwork and great guidance we were able to effect the repair.

I had the chance to work alongside and become friends with one the greatest dry stone wallers, Sean Adcock.  He not only wrote "the bible" on dry stone work- "Dry Stone Walling- a practical handbook"- he is also one the winningest wall builder at annual competitions.  

Below is a photo of us after a long day of stonework.
