 About Asheville Stone Mason Marc Archambault

In the mosaic workspace
My name is Marc Archambault and I am a stone mason and artist based in Asheville, North Carolina. I practice traditional, old school masonry techniques and create natural stone mosaics. I started setting stone in 1997 and have steadily grown in my ability to imagine a project and implement complex designs.

My stonework balances bomber structure and graceful aesthetics. I am a strong advocate of drystone construction, preferring whenever possible to avoid using mortar or concrete. Drystone construction creates structures that are more durable and beautiful than their mortared counterparts. Working dry is also better for the environment. I am skilled with mortared work as well, and take care to choose the best methods for each project.

In addition to building with stone, I am devoted to sharing the craft with others. I have taught stonework classes and maintain an active website and stonework blog. I am a member of The Stone Foundation and the Society of American Mosaic Artists. Sustainability in stonework construction is a passion of mine and I have written and presented on this topic.

 About the Hammerhead Crew

Fred Lashley

Fred joined Hammerhead in 2013. She and I had worked together for several years at the Unturned Stone. She was my first stone work teacher. In addition to her gifts with traditional masonry, she is an expert trail designer and builder. Her carpentry and other construction skills benefit us on many a project.

Jonathan Frederick

About Hammerhead Stoneworks

Hammerhead Stoneworks is my company, founded in spring 2009. I worked for The Unturned Stone for six years as a mason, designer, and project manager. I work in and around Asheville, but can be persuaded to go just about anywhere for the right project. Since founding Hammerhead, I have done projects in Chapel Hill, NC, Rock Hill, SC, Atlanta, GA and Gainesville, FL.
