CONCRETE HEXI-BOWL: NATURAL GRAY OR WHITE
The dimensions of this bowl are 1.75" tall x 6" wide x 9.25" in depth.
This bowl took us about a year to produce. In terms of aesthetics, it is one of our favorite products. Supple, smooth, and sinuous, it was certainly the most challenging product to craft that we offer for sale. We started by sculpting a big hunk of clay with the help of a couple rulers and calipers. After many incarnations, castings in plaster, refinements, and hard work, we settled on this casting.
All of our items are one of a kind. Each unit is cast in a hand made mold for about a week. We then hand burnish each, and then apply two coats of FDA approved linseed oil.
This item is not composed of typical concrete. It has taken us years to perfect this mix design. All of our concrete items are composed of an advanced cementitious mix which utilizes extremely small particulate, as well as recycled granite and marble dust that we source locally from the countertop industry...The result is an incredibly strong, smooth, and tactile surface that is more similar in physical characteristics to ceramic or aluminum than it is to concrete!
Please note: While our concrete mix design yields an aesthetically predictable product, our concrete can display slight variation in color and in texture. This creation will only get better with age, developing rich character and patina as it ages. Because cement cures at an asymptotic rate, all of our concrete products actually get MORE durable as the years go by!
