Andrew Currie's Work (Part 2)

By Thinking With My Hands on Mar 06, 2012

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.
