Zach Johnson began working stone in 1997 and knew very quickly it was what he wanted to do with his life. He enjoys the grounded presence that working with stone both brings and requires of him. He currently serves as Chairman of the Stone Foundation, an international group of stonemasons and carvers.
John Engelland began working with stone in the Fall of 2002, landscaping in the mountains west of Boulder. After a few weeks of building basic hardscapes he developed a love for the work. It wasn’t until 2008 that John was introduced to Zach Johnson, and joined up with Z Stone. John also spends his leisure time as a rock climber. He understands the privilege it is to work with this beautiful, ancient material.
