Andrew Currie's Work (Part 2)

The colourful patterned asymmetry of the flora combines with the random design of Andrew's stonework.  To build a wall like this is requires flair and controlled abandon.

Andrew's wall has none of the busy look one might expect from using such a variety of shapes and sizes. He carefully shapes and nestles the stones so that they not only fit snuggly and structurally, they also have a satisfying spontaneity. Even though bigger stones are placed above smaller ones and they are not all positioned along the horizontal, he creates both a highly functional and very pleasing looking structure.

See previous post for the story of this wall.
