    The artistry of an artisan…. Now, if he were an authentic “artist” recognized by the NYC Art Establishment, he could make some real money. Government grants. Rave review by NY Times art critic Holland Carter. An installation at the Whitney Museum. He would, of course, need an acceptable artistic statement, a Déclaration artistique. I would suggest the following: “Brick Lives Matter: The Foundational Oppression of People of Color in America.”

    That was so awesome.

    I remember there was a video out a couple years ago of just like 45 minutes of a guy laying concrete blocks on a construction site (CMUs), just as smooth and perfect, one after the other. And for some reason it was just mesmerizing to watch a master at his craft in something so common and mundane. I’ll post it if I can find it. Couldn’t believe I spent that much time watching it.

    all good, and yes lets do it, but just know that the ground is not level here along Texas border. so be prepared to have to make a few adjustments.

    Okay… I’m going to be a party pooper.
    Why? Really cool to watch but it would take a lot less time just to set them flat to begin with. Oh well… It was cool to watch.

    Some of the finest masons I have ever seen were Mexican/Mayans.

    Walking with sixty lb buckets of mud on their head up make shift ladders without using their hands and laying coarse after coarse of concrete bricks using the horizon and string line for level and 3/4/5 story poles for plumb and square. …all day long.

    Make Mexico great again and guess what???

    They will not want to leave the place that is near and dear to them.

    Trump knows this

    • When I was younger I did some work as a mason tender. Hardest work I ever did, but it left me in the best physical shape I’ve ever known.

      Leave the house before dark, eat breakfast in a greasy spoon, then head to the job site. Get the first batch of mortar ready so the mason can start laying block or brick (or setting stone) as soon as the light is good enough to make sure it’s all plumb, level, straight and true.
      By the end of the day, you’re one tired puppy.

        Nothing has changed.

        I’m a carpenter in life , and a general contractor by trade who studied architecture until I found out through a class in on site learning that I wanted to build rather than design. I will never quit working, and haven’t had a job in over forty years.

        I will help build the all for free.

        • You, too, have come to know the deep satisfaction that comes from working with your hands. Sometimes I visit old work sites, just to relive the experience of transforming a piece of vacant land and turning it into a home or some other useful structure. It brings me a much greater satisfaction than anything else, except the raising of a daughter and my grandchildren.

    In the cities near Asheville, NC the masonry work is beautiful and unusual. The master craftsman Vanderbilt brought in to build the Biltmore House continued to live and work in the area and evidence of their skill and talent is all around the area. Brevard is lovely!
