Dry-stone walling given a makeover

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - ART -

A HAR­RO­GATE brick­lay­er­turned-sculp­tor has taken the York­shire tra­di­tion of dry-stone walling to a new height.

Johnny Clasper has com­pleted his first or­ganic free-form wall.

The stone­ma­son and pro­fes­sional mem­ber of the York­shire Dry-stone Walling Guild said it was part of his mis­sion to rein­vent the art of dry-stone walling and turn it into an art form wor­thy of its own ex­hi­bi­tion spaces.

The for­mer brick­layer will fea­ture his handy­work in an ex­hi­bi­tion at Thorp Per­row, the Wood­land Gar­den, in Bedale, later this month.
