An Edwin Profile – Thomas Appleton on Modern Stonemasonry

Another short film from Edwin‘s series of profiles “documenting individuals from all walks of life in their preferred Edwin cut.” Here, Thomas Appleton, Nashville wearer, lets us in on the world of Stonemasonry. A relatively unusual craft, while we continue to hear all about the return of sign-writing, leather work, whittling and other manly, heritage-y, oldy worldy pursuits, Appleton has been carving away at ancient blocks, an age old profession that he hopes to bring a contemporary edge to. Basically, it’s not all headstones and house signs. Press play to see Appleton in action.
