About The Site



The love of the stone...

That's what you'll find in the heart of any good carver and you'll find it here.

This site and original work are a direct connection to my days spent at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC, and at Building Crafts Training College, London, where I learned the ancient craft of stonecarving.

This online learning center for Gothic art and architecture is meant to share the beauty and the living spirit of the stone with you.

Wander back into history with a visit to a Virtual Abbey. Discover tips & tricks to Gothic geometry, or learn to speak the language of stone -- at the Field Guide to Architectural Terms

Once you've tasted the joy that this art form can give, you'll want to learn more. If you have questions on medieval art, architecture or general history questions -- write to me directly or help yourself to the site Resources.
