CONCRETE - I recall working with my grandfather in the concrete trade doing flatwork; sidewalks, patios and porches. I became fascinated with this seemingly unnatural fluid material that would take the shape of its container and become solid in a matter of hours.  We all can relate to the process of how a building is made.  Textures, uneven surfaces, hand made and natural materials give a building human scale.  Imagine how the natural elements will improve the overall appear of that material or building over time. Sunlight and shadows trace the surface from different times of day, rain will pass over the material dirt will collect. Building surfaces could become art.
