New Urban Series

September 7th, 2012

Got Urban? No? Get some.  The clean lines juxtaposed to the raw reclaimed materials is a big F.U. to the commercialized mainstream uniformity, creatures of the commonplace can shop elsewhere. For this piece we used three of my favorite materials – galvanized steel with a patina reminiscent of vintage industrial finishes, this is paired with charcoal concrete and reclaimed original face circle-sawn Oak. For more info on how we can help urbanize your dwelling give us a shout, we would love to get involved. – Cheers

Yellowstone National Park gets some concreteness

May 31st, 2011

When Yellowstone National Park contacted us about making some recycled concrete countertops for Mammoth hotel I thought to myself, what a great opportunity to save $25 on my entrance fee and get into the park for free!  Ha, actually is was a great opportunity to show off the greener side of concrete at one of our country’s greatest national parks.  For this project they wanted to use materials that were recycled from the park itself and in the process educate their guests about the some of the possibilities of recycling.
We gathered glass bottles from the recycling stations around the park and brought them back to our studio to the glass crusher/cement mixer with big rocks in it.  This crushed glass was then [...]

Metal plated concrete

May 16th, 2011

That’s right, one of our more recent additions to our line of exclusive finishes is actual metal plated concrete.  These finishes are currently available in copper, bronze, and zinc, the copper and bronze are both living finishes meaning they can patina beautifully over time while the silvery zinc is more stable and less prone to color changes.  Keep an eye out for more projects coming up featuring these unique finishes, meanwhile start brainstorming where you can use some of our concreteness in your home or business.  Here are a few ideas to get the ball rolling – countertops, sinks, soaking tubs, wall veneers, floor and wall tiles, shower surrounds, stair treads, retail displays, shelves, and countless other furnishings.

Jerrad,
I was at the house to check and work on things  these past few days and I cannot tell you how much your counter tops have done for the place. They are one of the best decisions we made and I am so happy to have these pieces of “artwork” in my home.  You are an artist for sure, and I know your work is creating quite a buzz over at YT.
Everything is just beautiful and your “stripe” that you talked me into under the master tub is perfect.  Thank you again for all of your inspiration and care with our new home.

New Artist Series

November 2nd, 2010

We are currently rolling out our artist series of concrete countertops and wall panels.  As shown in the pictures this line is quite a bit different than our some of our other options due to the fact that multiple colors are used and each piece is truly one of a kind.  This line is perfect for the client who wants something a little less conservative and is willing to give some artistic license to the artisan.

Another great application for our artist series is featured at this sportsman’s paradise in beautiful Melrose, MT.  The outdoor BBQ is a great place to get creative and have some fun with concrete countertops, and that’s just what we did while still working with a color pallet that [...]

Bio

July 5th, 2010

In this bio, Jerrad Inlow will refer to himself in the third person. That way, he can write about his life as an endlessly important artist, his countless and adventurous travels to exotic locales and his award-winning works, all without coming across as a shameless bragger.
Because it will appear as if someone else wrote this about him, as if Jerrad was most certainly important enough so other people write about his life and operations.
He will furthermore refer to his home as ’studio’, and to his beloved wife as ’studio manager’. Who will ever know?
He will also be sure to mention his apprenticeship with superlative artisans and his professional beginnings in New York City, as well as his trilingualism. Then he’ll [...]

Dear Jerrad:
Every time I enter my new kitchen I cannot bill help think of you and the extraordinary job you did for Dot and I. Rarely, if ever, have I been so impressed with work done for me. Your creativity, attention to detail, demand for excellence, responsiveness to my needs, friendliness, your availability to discuss ideas and accept my input, and, most particularly, the stellar quality of your finished work and the pride you take in it are all well beyond today’s accepted professional standards. The custom backsplash you worked so hard and carefully to create and to lay-out perfectly in your shop, added the final perfect touch to the job. You are to be congratulated, praised and profusely and [...]
