As you may know or have already seen, we have laid a polished concrete slab for our new house which has materials like glass beads, shells, unique rocks, old bits of terracotta pipe and gin bottles “seeded” into it. By chance we ended up with a few random bits and pieces that were given to us by friends, that ended up showing through in the polishing of the first slab. Seeing these random items polished gave us a feeling that the floor meant more to us than being just OUR creation…. .. It’s hard to explain but we like the concept and the result so much we have decided we want you to give us some little things we can put into our next slab we are going to lay. Our main living area! In the first week in April (so you only have a few weeks) , we are going to make preparations to pour the slab.
We would really love to have your little piece in the floor that we be there forever.
There are a few little criteria. The items must be smaller than approx 25mm cubed but bigger than 10mm cubed (or diameter) and they need to be as hard or harder than the concrete.
So if you want to contribute, we would be delighted to receive your offerings. Deliver them by foot, send them by mail, drop them off on your bike, just get them to us before 6th April or they will not be set in stone.
Many thanks, Greg and Alice.
P.S. If you have any questions on what you think would or wouldn’t be good in polished concrete, get in touch.
