Wieler - Stonemason - Dublin, Ireland

Sunny Wieler

Dublin, Ireland

Summary

My passion for landscaping spans back to my teen years where he would spend my weekends working in my neighbours’ gardens, which I continued to do up into until my college years.

While obtaining my degree in Sculpture and Multimedia in the Crawford College of Art & Design in Cork, I would spend many of my free weekends building garden projects for my friends and family.

After graduating from college I worked for several different landscaping companies, where I continued to develop my skills. In 2005 I set up my company, Stone Art.
Initially Stone Art provided artistic stonework and garden features, but with increasing demand this quickly developed into full landscaping services.

Using my recently acquired diploma in Landscape Design and the multimedia skills that I acquired in art college, I also began creating garden designs with the aid of computer aided design or CAD software.

In 2008 I spent a year working for a landscaping company in Christchurch, New Zealand where I spent part of my time hard landscaping and the rest of the time creating 3D garden designs.

When The opportunity arises, I also takes on sculpture commissions, creating beautiful unique pieces in a variety of materials and styles for both public and private gardens

I also write a blog where I share all my passions for stone, landscaping and artisans.

The Gathering of Stones

Working under my role as Chairman of the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland (DSWAI) I have been lucky enough to be involved in a very interesting project in the Midlands, where with the help of volunteers we are building a dry stone monument using stone gathered from all over the country and beyond. In fact the most impressive and symbolic donate stones are four granite slabs from the original emigrant docks in New York over which millions of Irish emigrants would have walked over when arriving in the new world.
The structure represents the country of Ireland and a welcome home to the people who left and never returned. The outer walls represent the four provinces of Ireland. Built from a stone type and style from the province it represents, the outer walls embrace the central feature (the fifth province) representing the creative mind, the diaspora. The millions of souls and talents who left our shores and spread their skills far and wide.
In June with the help of 80 volunteers we began work on our monument. You can read more about it here. http://dswaireland.ning.com/page/the-gathering-of-stones
