The power of collaboration can be amazing. When three concrete artisans teamed with a professional painter/sculptor, the result was a unique masterpiece. Contractor John Jarvis and his team at Carve Surfaceworks welcomed their client, artist Tom Slattery, to work alongside them as they created this floor for his yoga studio in Wilmington, N.C. As the concrete experts applied layer upon layer of vivid acetone dye stains, Tom used an air compressor to coax the dye into shapes inspired by nearby ocean beaches. The result? Fresh, fluid, smooth forms — just like the movements he teaches his yoga students.

Concrete Know-How:
John Jarvis reduced the red dye to 25% of its original intensity and turned three H&C® Acetone Dye Stain colors into six by strategically blending. He says, “Acetone dyes have revolutionized the business. Thanks to their short dry time, we can finish a project very quickly.”
