This giant 2,500 lb. block is a visual calendar of our most recent work – modeled in scrap concrete. We custom fabricate each piece and usually have a little extra material left over, which we contain onsite instead of throwing away.
The irregular horizontal pattern looks like a grade school model of the earth’s crust – and similar to a geological sample, these blocks measure our manufacturing process over time. Each block tells a unique color history and is approximately 4′x4′x2′. The pure unfinished qualities of the block make them aesthetically interesting and they’re sustainable.
We are currently filling a mold that can be used as planter. Contact us if you’d like to use Concreteworks MetaBlocks -short for metamorphic, for a backyard project or urban parklet.
