Shane migrated to Australia almost a decade ago bringing the traditional skills and practices that sees stone structures in Ireland lasting centuries, as well as an innovative edge that produces a ‘timeless look’ when working on contemporary projects and established projects alike. Throughout his time in Australia, Shane’s workmanship and practised expertise has landed him opportunities to work on several prestigious projects such as the award-winning National Arboretum, alongside highly esteemed architects, builders and tradespeople.
Stonemasonry is one of the earliest trades in history and only the last 150 years or so, have seen much change in the approach to this craft. Even with some great innovations, techniques used over millennia are still being practiced to this day, and stone as an exterior or interior medium, continues to be used for its versatility and stunning textural impact. Simply put, traditional stonework uses natural, quarried stone that is individually shaped by hand and laid with or without mortar to form the desired structure or surface.
