“Until you spend a day learning stonemasonry, you’d possibly never given much thought to the fact that walls are flat. But after a few hours in a boiler suit and safety goggles, hacking incompetently at a block of Portland limestone, the flatness of walls – especially stone ones, in churches and stately homes and suchlike – suddenly struck new apprentices to this industry as completely astonishing.
Consider three facts:
If you ever think about the art of stonemasonry at all, you probably think of intricate carvings, or elegant columns, or gargoyles. Yet those vast expanses of flatness are amazing. You don't tend to notice them – but to make them unnoticeable takes a great deal of skill.”
