Stone: Russell Dawson

Rocks have a special appeal to artist and stonemason Russell Dawson. He is particularly drawn to their shape and weathered condition. His love for the material as well as his art background are reflected in the walls, chimneys, walkways, patios, benches, and custom homes he has built. Largely self-taught, Dawson hopes his work will be a “celebration of nice rocks.”
