About Asheville Stone Mason Marc Archambault
My name is Marc Archambault and I am a stone mason and artist based in Asheville, North Carolina. I practice traditional, old school masonry techniques and create natural stone mosaics. I started setting stone in 1997 and have steadily grown in my ability to imagine a project and implement complex designs. My stonework is an artful balance between bomber structure and graceful aesthetics. I am a strong advocate of drystone construction. In many instances, building dry- without mortar or concrete- creates more durable and more beautiful works, that are gentler for the environment. I am skilled with mortared work as well, and I take care to choose the best methods for each project.
In addition to building with stone, I am devoted to sharing the craft with others; I teach stonework classes and maintain an active website and stonework blog. I am a member of the Stone Foundation and Handmade in America. I am very interested in sustainability in stonework construction and have written and presented on this topic.
About Hammerhead Stoneworks
Hammerhead Stoneworks is my company, founded in spring 2009. I worked for the Unturned Stone for six years as a mason, designer and project manager. I mostly work in and around Asheville, but can be persuaded to go just about anywhere for the right project. Since founding Hammerhead, I have done projects in Chapel Hill, NC, Rock Hill, SC, Atlanta, GA and Gainesville, FL.
