Arched Water Feature

I was honoured to be able to work this week with Jason Hoffman helping him on a unique dry stone retaining wall project which included the building of a recessed arch opening over a stone water trough where natural spring water flows through a stone spout and into an old stone trough. (The trough which was hewn hand wash basin, came from a old mill in Lancashire )
The actual moment that the forms come out (presuming the arch doesn't fall down) is always a great time of rejoicing.


  1. Awesome beauty and a great stone feature!

  2. Hi John,

    Great work, looks like it's going to be a majestic piece! My husband is currently working on a hybrid kelkay fountain, half original and half his own stone work. Hope it can turn out decent.
