Johnny Clasper‘s hypnotic free-form stonework is a swirling spectacle that garners its fair share of attention, and rightly so. The stonemason's passion for his craft is apparent in every detailed design. From drystone sculptures to pebble mosaics and stone balancing acts, Clasper has a skill for transforming the commonplace material into works of art. The artist credits his upward trajectory on a passion for stone that carries him in many different directions. He admits, “I reject any boundaries to my work and I remain passionate about the work I do.”
Based in Yorkshire, UK, Clasper has years of experience in the industry. In that past, he went to college to study bricklaying and found a niche in the practical, hands-on subject. What has allowed him to advance from simple bricklayer to established stonemason however, is an innovative outlook and ability to transform ordinary stones into captivating mosaics. With pieces beginning to be exhibited within his home country, Clasper still takes commission enquiries regarding stone laying work and sculptures through his website.
