This cellar contains a 250 million year old ammonite fossil inlayed into concrete. The familiar spiral that emerges in each 250 million year old fossilized ammonite is approximated by the Fibonacci sequence… The relationship that exists between complex biological processes and the elegant pattern of numbers that describe them is permanently cast into each concrete cellar that we craft. All of our items are one of a kind. We cast each unit in a hand made mold for about a week. We then hand burnish each, and then apply three coats of our own FDA approved sealer. Each product is backed with cork for added tabletop protection.
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, very little water, and reactive recycled pozzolans...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!
