Tell us about your business.We craft a range of unique and sustainable concrete products supplied in collaboration with architects, designers, and builders to create innovative solutions for interior and exterior environments. We provide quality products and service with a specialized knowledge that is committed to the ongoing innovation of concrete.
Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.We have such a great crew! Being a concrete shop, it's a messy and fast paced place, but the end product is so polished and beautiful... there is a real juxtaposition. We take local raw materials (including sand, pigments and natural stone) and then mix, cast, cure and hand grind to different surfaces; we then cut the slabs into custom sized tiles. EVERY project we do is made to order, therefore we are forever adapting. Our space is earthy, wet and creative.
What inspires you?Modern design. The simplistic contemporary lines of modern architecture. The raw and organic beauty of concrete as a material. Southern California beach culture. But mostly our clients.
What makes your business stand out?We craft a one of a kind product! We are so proud of how commercial we are. Hand crafted, innovative, family, local, or made in the USA products do not mean hard to source or expensive, as we are both cost effective and are capable to supply large scale architectural projects.
What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?No one is an overnight success; know your craft and chose one thing to champion. You have to refine what you do, and do it better than everyone else!
What does American Made mean to you?Quality. Innovation. And growing our family and passion with all our employees. Success!
