Riven cut marble 5mm thick

Riven cut marble 5mm thick

I’m just waiting for my new mic to arrive so I can finish the hammer and hardie video. In the meantime I’ve been looking at producing a riven cut of marble for sale.

These pieces are 8mm – 12mm along each edge but they are only 5mm thickness meaning they can be cut with nippers and the base of each is a machine cut flat surface. This means you can use the direct method for something that previously needed a hammer and hardie and experience with the Ravenna Method.

You don’t need any colour enhancers or waxes with this as what you see is the ‘true’ colour of the stone.

I will cut a certain amount then see what the interest is. Price wise it will be a little more expensive, approximately £2.20 per 100 grams, about 70 – 80 tesserae.
