Keith Middlemas courthouse stone carver

Stone carver Keith Middlemas, Oskaloosa, is sculpting four new finials that will replace deteriorating ones on the clock tower at the Douglas County Courthouse. The project is part of a multi-year courthouse restoration effort on the 103-year-old building that began in late 2007. Lawrence artist Laura Ramberg is also working on stone pieces for the courthouse.

Laura Ramberg works on a 900-pound block of cottonwood limestone in her rural Lawrence shop Monday, June 16, 2008. The sculpted stone is one of three pieces that Ramberg is completing for the Douglas County Courthouse, part of a multi-year restoration project to the 103-year-old building. Ramber and Oskaloosa stone carver Keith Middlemas are both sculpting new pieces to replace deteriorated stone sections.
