Lake Boulevard― Lindstrom ―
The City of Lindstrom wanted us to repair a wall installed by an unqualified company hired by MnDOT. The wall was meant to be a traditional wall found in a Nordic region, specifically Sweden. Since it is in a public space it is important to have art that is safe, durable, and requires zero maintenance.
We applied our ancient traditional drystone craft training to rebuild this feature wall for the city. A freestanding wall with horizontal copes, laid in the traditional dry-laid method, the stonework was done with a fieldstone from an Arkansas quarry, sometimes known as Oklahoma Fieldstone or Moss Rock. We brought in Buckskin and Savanna Stone to be shaped with pins and feathers for copes on the curved wall.
