About the Author

Originally a ceramist with a craftsman's interest in architectural integrity, Buddy abandoned his clay and potters wheel when he developed a way to meld the warmth and earthy handmade quality of pottery with the strength, versatility and architectural applicability of concrete. His extensive product development and practiced understanding of the material coincided with the growth of international interest in concrete as a widely available and sustainable material capable of providing a timeless earth element to a broad spectrum of projects. Applicability in the kitchen and bath has taken off in the last few years and Buddy Rhodes' name has become synonymous with "designer concrete."
