Johnny Clasper is a stonemason with a difference. His incredible free-form sculptures stem from his philosophy of “rejecting boundaries.”
The former bricklayer is from Yorkshire, UK, where he turns stones and rocks into anything ranging from patios to innovative sculptures and captivating mosaics.
Since an early age Clasper, now 38, loved practical subjects like pottery, woodworking, and metalwork. But he didn’t get a chance to let those skills shine until he went to college to study brickworking.
“At last something I really wanted to learn and really enjoyed doing.”
“My passion for stone takes me in many different directions, as I reject any boundaries to my work and I remain passionate about the work I do,” Clasper writes on his website.
“If stone can be brought to life maybe it could become fluidic and flow like water would?”
