Since 1987, StoneWorks has set the standard for dazzling stone countertops, bathrooms, and even outdoor kitchens in the Lowcountry, sourcing only the most stunning raw materials and crafting it with the skilled touch of a true artisan. As the founder of StoneWorks, John Baltzegar, III built his company from the ground up, making sales calls during the day before spending his nights in the shop. These days, there are fewer late nights thanks to a staff of dozens of the Lowcountry’s finest professionals.
But two in particular, his sons John IV and Brian, are not just pouring their passion into each project. They are helping to guide their father’s business into the future.
“I’m very proud of this, seeing my family involved,” said John III. “For over 20 years they’ve worked in many aspects: our sales, templating, installation and management positions. Their skills, expertise, vision, and hard work are invaluable to the company.”
His sons not only share his talent in crafting gorgeous stone creations, they share his enthusiasm for the art and science that StoneWorks embodies. “Over the years I learned a lot from my dad and others, and, hopefully, they also learned from us,” said John IV. “Each phase of the operation in this business offers a lot of work, and a lot of room for creativity.”
“It’s a great honor to build on our father’s legacy in the stone industry,” added Brian. “We feel well positioned to continue serving the Carolina Lowcountry.”
After their combined 75 years of experience that has passed, you’ll still find all three of these leading men on the job each work day, doing what they love and do best.
