Art Of Cement – Wabi Sabi – is the ‘philosophy of life that treats the beauty of imperfection as an aesthetic vision of things…’
Established in 1992 and based in Nules Castellón we have created real cement pieces, hand pressed and dried at room temperature for 28 days. The robustness of our pieces is acquired in a natural way achieving low emission pieces. Thanks to this natural drying process we will never find two equal pieces.
Further information – After 28 days of drying, we moisten our pieces again and we age them in a traditional way to close the porosity of the cement and accentuate its textures. Each piece acquires small imperfections that make it unique and inimitable. Once this process is finished, we calibrate the pieces in the formats 15x15x1,1 cm and 20x20x1,3 cm to facilitate their placement. Both formats are suitable for use in flooring or wall cladding.
Afterwards, we print our designs on the pieces, using organic inks that penetrate the cement. The inks fuse with the cement, creating a surface that exhibits the natural textures of the cement.
Finally, we treat our pieces to reduce their absorption and brush them one by one to give them that brightness that is so characteristic of authentic cement.
