DAN SNOW is an art maker specializing in dry stone constructions. He has been building with stone since 1972. His career as a professional dry stone waller began soon after, in his native Windham County, Vermont. Dan became a Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain Master Craftsman in 2000.
Dan’s dry stone constructions include stock-proof fences, pillars, stiles, staircases and arch bridges. Utilitarian works have expanded into garden follies, grottos, grandstands, pyramids, sculpture of a purely abstract nature and environmental art pieces. In 2001 Dan authored In the Company of Stone. Stone Rising, a film by Camilla Rockwell, captures the spirit of Dan’s constructions and chronicles the process of their creation.
Dan has instructed many workshops in dry stone walling and lectured on the craft across the USA, Canada and Great Britain. As a DSWA Examiner he has organized many test venues and examined dozens of test applicants in the certification scheme.
