99% of what we make at Liquid Quarry is one of a kind. We create things like Countertops, Fireplaces, Outdoor Fire Pits, Furniture, Picture Frames, and Tiles. Usually we make one object and then re-use the parts of the mold made for it for our next thing, until the parts we have left are too small. Rarely do we make the same thing twice. We then usually deliver what we made, take a few pictures if our client doesn't mind, and then do it all over again.
Potential customers ask - can we come to your shop and see examples of your work? We have a few samples of pieces we have made, and lots of colour samples, but if we had examples of everything we do, we would need twice the space, and our prices would have to increase! When we make your concrete, even though we have cast hundreds of things, we still marvel every time we take a new piece out of its mold. Every piece is unique, with all kinds of unpredictable but incredibly welcome subtle differences, even with a piece cast from the same mix on the same day. Chemistry? Time? Temperature? These are only three of the variables of many that make this the most unpredictable in appearance but predictable in quality - material to work with. When new customers ask - show me what you have, we are often forced to say - tell us what you want, and then our creative forces and the will of this material make smiles.
