Washington Rock Quarries made its debut at the Puyallup Farmer’s Market over the weekend on April 15, 2023. Sales manager Sam Martinson and I answered questions from market visitors about landscaping projects and products.
Washington Rock Quarries is proud to announce that we are a 2023 sponsor of the Puyallup Farmer’s Market. We will have a booth at the first day of the market on Saturday, April 15th, next to the flower vendors.
In 2020, a group of Washington Rock team members and their spouses traveled to Las Vegas for CONEXPO-CON/AGG, one of the largest construction trade shows in the world. People came from all over the world to attend, make connections, and showcase their products and ideas.
We rented a sprawling house about 20 minutes from the Strip and had two vans to shuttle employees to the show, nicknamed Van Damme and Van Morrison (one of my favorite memories).
In front of the community movie theater in Friday Harbor, a perch welcomes anyone who passes by. It’s not your everyday park bench: it’s sculpted granite, refined in its well-formed lines and polished surfaces, yet preserving a natural form in its organic waves and curves. Like its creator Tom Small, it is solid, stable, and unpretentious. It invites viewers to pause and enjoy a few minutes’ rest and peace.
The bench is one of sculptor Tom Small’s first public pieces. Seeing people seated on it brings Tom a sense of fulfillment when he ventures into town, and it reminds him of his primary goal in stone carving.
