Artistic Stonework


Peter Kornacki is a stone mason and stone carver.  He lives in Sooke, west of Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  The coastal setting and wildlife activity in the area have played an important role in his stonework.  They influence the themes within stone fireplaces, exterior stonework, and stone carvings.

Images of the grizzly bear, the salmon, the whale, water movement, and surf are inserted within his masonry work. They are also sculpted into his carvings which are created in various types of stone.

Living in the Rockies

Peter’s interest in working with stone began in Canmore, Alberta, when he lived in the Bow Valley amidst the Rocky Mountains.  Surrounded by towering rock and glacial lakes, Peter’s relationship with the Rocky Mountains evolved through an active interest in rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, and fishing.
