Reconnecting family stones

 A student of mine taking the Port Hope May 23/24 2014 workshop has since just finished the lovely stone garden wall in the above pictures. The stone material that Rodger reclaimed came from a historic limestone home which his great uncle owned and had bequeathed to Queens University.  Unfortunately they sold it to a land developer who realized it lacked proper designation.  They quickly demolished it on a Friday of a holiday weekend.  Rodger told me he feels a kindred spirit in the reuse of these family stones.  "They lay in a huge pile where the home stood."  Rodger went on to say " Kinda sad today that developers can still get away with this."
