Marble supplies and kits

June 9, 2014

My marble saw has finally died, that makes it the 5th one! Unfortunatley one suitable for the amount I cut can cost 10’s of thousands so rather than make the cost of the cut material too high I use saws made for tilers. I’m presently pricing up another of those.

I’ve zeroed the stock levels for the individual supplies plus the kits (see below about the kits). Watch here or sign up to the newsletter to be informed when they are all available again.

The small double guilloche kit is now available using the Byzantic tesserae, a hard fired clay which can be cut with scissors. I’ll be posting up more information about that soon but there are a couple of those kits available already. See here for details

Marble rods down in price 

May 15, 2014

I’ve just reduced the marble rods down in price to £8.00 per kilo, the dark green is only £5.00 (I’ve got a big stack of that!). I’ve had some more come in so they’ll go up in the next couple of days. They include the composite blue and a couple of pinks. You can see the page here

Roman mosaic kits

May 3, 2014

As I’ve a lot of marble coming in and I’m now getting the time to cut I’ve kept the mosaic kits available. You can see the full range here and I’ll be adding to them over the next couple of weeks. If you’re outside of the UK I will be adding the option of just having the tesserae and patterns to save weight on postage, just let me know if there is a particular one you’re interested in.
