The Sunny Day

We Work With Artists

Creative Edge Master Shop works with artists! We would like to share a luminous piece titled
The Sunny Day from artist Sue Berkey, capturing the art of water-jet through Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT).

Long thought of as a sensible form of floor covering, adorning elementary schools, Walmart’s, and recreation centers, VCT comes in many colors, textures, and patterns. A little known fact is that VCT is a green product. The composition is less than 10% vinyl, while 90% is made from locally sourced crushed limestone.

Creative Edge Master Shop has long considered VCT’s potential as an artistic medium, particularly when water-jet can be used to shape and detail.

Pittsburgh Airport

Happy New Year from Creative Edge Master Shop!

Creative Edge Master Shop wishes you and yours a healthy and prosperous 2016! 

happy-new-year

Please click the link below from FLOORING NEWS to learn about the art of Terrazzo fabricated for the Pittsburgh Airport. Creative Edge Master Shop’s waterjet system cut the metal for the most intricate designs required to create this terrazzo masterpiece. This was fabricated with our trademarked stencil system from artist Clayton Merrell’s design, which Roman Mosaic used to form the metal strips. Only with art can you touch the sky!

“Terrazzo has been used as a decorative and durable flooring product since the days of the Roman Empire. Over two thousand years later, it still maintains a strong reputation as hard flooring offering a true combination of durability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics and performance. How it is manufactured is basically unchanged since its inception.”
