Concrete sculpture, untitled

 

Rick is branching out from the wall art he’s become known for and has been doing some interesting things with the big chunks of Sytrofoam that, sadly, wash up all too often on our beaches. He works with the shapes formed by waves and sand and painstakingly covers them with one or more of his proprietary concrete formulas, adding several layers in different colours. After that, he sands the concrete down until he achieves a marble-like pattern, followed by further sanding and polishing until the piece fairly gleams. Then he coats it with  a special waterproof sealer that contains additional colouring.

This piece stands at about four feet tall, weighs only fifty pounds, and is durable enough to withstand our West Coast winters.
