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.

Tracing patterns for Roman mosaics

April 11, 2014

I’ve now added the tracing patterns to the shop. The scaling up ones will be put in later today. Available in singles or as a full pack. You can see them here,

News about the supplies from the workshop

March 27, 2014

A bit of news (it’s also the first paragraph in the newsletter just out);

I’ve decided to take 6 months off from the supplies part of the business so I can focus on the manuals and getting the DVD course produced. This means the baseboards, tesserae supplies and kits will be suspended. Because the marble saw I use isn’t that powerful it’s just taking up too much time to keep up with the demand for material. I will still be cutting the 4mm tesserae for the workshops but not to have on general sale. This way I avoid becoming a one man sweatshop!
I will restock in time for the BAMM conference in London in October.

If you want any kits then you still have until this Monday to order after which I will take them down. The page is here;

There will be some available to go with the Staff manual but at this stage I have no idea how many.

What will remain in the shop is;
Publications – Tools – Marble rods – Pattern packs
