FOUNTAIN IN POLISHED BLACK MARBLE MARQUINA

This work was a custom order for a town in the province of Leon (Spain).

We was provided details of design and measurements for manufacturing a center fountain in black marble with polished finish marquina we manufacture from a solid block.

Treatment terracotta floor: rustic finish

This work was performed cleaning and treatment of terracotta floor of a room that had suffered leaks and moisture had only recently made the corresponding work to fix it.

It was a new terracotta floor in 30x30 cm format. In the rest of the house they had placed a terracotta floor of a lighter shade with colored rustic finish treatment. The idea was to finish as close as possible to do the terracotta floor together with the rest of the house.
