Fellow stone mason Sean Smyth from Montana showed up on Monday in California to help us on another dry stone walling project this winter here in Gualala. He and Dave Claman helped build the greenhouse/pyromid shown in the photo above.
The mug in the photo is a pottery product he makes back in Missoula called the Momug . It keeps the mustaches from getting foamy.
Sean writes on his web site…" I am drawn to the trades, to the craft involved in skilled labor, whether it's pottery, stone masonry or cabin restoration. I most enjoy the days when my hands are filled with hard work worth doing."
