003 Concrete Countertop {Design/Fabrication}

Posted in Uncategorized by mhume on July 6, 2009

Concrete has managed to scale the centuries as one of the most interesting building materials with a seemingly infinite number of applications and visual variations. My latest set of concrete counter tops includes an embedded bowl with emerald green glass chunks that are about the size of a golf ball. This glass adds incredible depth to the top, creates a moment of color and moves from the bottom of the bowl, over the lip and continues to the corner of the sink. This top was polished to varying depths, I wanted to create a solid surface with meandering lines where the top was ground down to expose the aggregate.

      I am experimenting with multiple layers of acrylic sealer and pure Carnauba wax wax to finish. Im glad you like the top!

      Thank you
