Stone Outdoor Grill Island

I am a stoneworker and craftsman in southern Maine. I specialize in dry stone construction (e.g. stone walls with no mortar), as well as mortared stonework that evokes traditional techniques. I'm also adept at small-scale landscape design that integrates local stone, dwarf conifers, and native perennials.

In addition to stonework, I build outdoor furniture (including outdoor sofas) and I create woodburnt works of art.

 

I care about using local natural materials to create beautiful and useful places to calm the mind. And I care about making these places attainable for regular people.

Woodburnt / Pyrographic Art

 

Bring me a vision or a prompt and I'll burn it to life. I especially like to make pieces that have some utility by incorporating coat hooks, bells, chimes, bottle openers, candles, or anything else you can imagine.
