Art Over Concrete

Well I am just getting back and getting over the World of Concrete and whatever stomach flu/disease I got in Las Vegas. We had a nice little artsy booth amongst the MEGA booths and earth moving machinery. Actually, I saw a great upsurge in the interest and display of decorative concrete and there were lots of great artisans exhibiting and demoing outside in the Artistry in Concrete area. I WILL post pictures soon!


In the meantime, here is some work of one of our decorative concrete customers, John Carney of Art Over Concrete. John did this beautiful Shanghai Concrete Carpet design using our Modello Dye Stains to both layer on a textural background for this carpet as well as stenciling the design elements in metallic gold. You can see more of John’s work in our concrete Gallery. John is a lovely sounding man from Tennessee who got into decorative concrete about 4 years ago after “retiring” from his career as an optometrist and is now expanding into decorative wall finishes as well.

    This is apropos of absolutely nothing but your blog banner is the most beautiful on the web.

    Is there an award for that? No seriously, thank you very much!! One of the reasons I went with WordPress as my blogging platform is so that I could do multiple themes and people could use the “theme switcher” to choose what type of design style they could view the blog in. I haven’t gotten to designing any more themes yet, but Moroccan design is next on the list!

    I voted for your blog. Good luck!!!
