All our concrete is hand dyed and poured into our molds in our garage on the Jersey Shore. We then sand, wash, apply sealant and apply cork or rubber feet to the bottom. They will not fade in the sun and they will not absorb water. The perfect piece to be left outside on your patio table, near your fire pit or used in your outdoor kitchen. A bonus...they will not blow away, whew! To keep clean you can hose them off, wipe with a damp cloth or wash them with soap & water in the sink. The perfect piece of functional art for your everyday use.
