Stone brings a sense of connection to geologic time, revealing clues to the past. The skillful crafting of stone creates a built environment with patterns and qualities unique to its own place and time with this rich material. The images below share the craftsmanship of Drew Weigle, a stone mason in Durango.
Quoting Drew: “These photos are different sections or elements of the same project and residence. A really great relationship with a number of quarries guaranteed a premium selection of beautiful choice stones.
Stone in the circular outdoor patio area came from two sources:
– Building stone and steps (vertical work) were quarried in Cross Canyon
– Colorado Flagstone slabs (paving) were quarried over by Slick Rock, Colorado
Indoor fireplace stones and building stone were quarried at the Cross Canyon Quarry.
Outdoor fireplace moss rock boulders selectively gathered around the Cross Canyon area in Colorado. Smaller chimney moss rock came from Thoreau, New Mexico.”
