Space & Thyme Podcast Ep. 3

In this episode, we continue exploring how people working with natural landscapes connect to place. This time however, we focus on the craft of stonemasonry. We interviewed members of a local Boulder stonemasonry business called Z Stone, and asked them about what attracts them to stone work and why it is important. We trace some of the history of stone masonry from Medieval Japan to modern Colorado in order to explore both the historical significance of this work as well as the notion of a trade that masters teach to apprentices. Lastly, we take a look at how these kinds of trades survive in our modern communities.
