Stonemason Alex Woodcock has been kind enough to provide entertaining a fascinating lectures for us on the historic stonecarvings in our churches. His latest book King of Dust is a craftsman’s journey through the landscapes and ancient sculpture that inspired him to pick up tools. Weaving the author’s own history with the potency of the stonecarvings and stories of their medieval carvers, the book is a meditation on craft, the importance of the handmade, and the transformative power of art in our lives. It explores how stone connects us with others through time and can help us find our place in the world.
