For thirty years, master waller Dan Snow has been creating stunning works of dry stone throughout southern Vermont and New Hampshire. Dan offers workshops internationally and is the author of In The Company of Stone, a book about his craft, with photographs by Peter Mauss. For the first time, his unique work is featured on DVD and VHS in the one hour production: STONE RISING.

Enter into Dan’s creative process and learn about the aesthetic and practical aspects of walling with dry stone. Through humorous and insightful interviews with Dan, his patrons and associates, discover the dramatic possibilities of gardening and landscaping with natural stone.

Grottos and waterfalls, a stone boat, a beehive tomb, ancient-looking fortifications, even a Moorish style stone tent! Offering intimate explorations of Dan’s constructions, STONE RISING presents one man’s devotion to the work, mystery and endless surprise of his craft.
