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.”

Stone Flooring in Houston Hospital

I was totally blown away when photos of this completed job arrived! This grand hospital entry medallion at North Cypress Medical Center is simply breathtaking!

Designer Kimberly Michaud Interiors, of Brentwood, TN, selected custom colors to match the rest of the hospital’s design.

While organizing this contract for Creative Edge, I saw the work at every stage: however, the final results far surpassed my expectations.

This job was cut precisely using our state-of-the-art waterjet techniques, making it easy for Camarata Masonry Systems to install. Daltile architectural representative Randy Hoffman and SpawMaxwell were a pleasure to work with on this project. This project was installed in the elevator lobbies on five floors of this facility, which creates a real ‘wow’ factor.

Pour-In-Place Terrazzo Replacement

If you have never seen the installation of our one-piece waterjet cut metal frame, here is your chance. This job started out as precast terrazzo, but had to be re-done as a pour-in-place. It was a bear logo in the entryway of a new business that was damaged.

We hired a terrazzo contractor to remove the old logo and replace it with a new pour-in-place job. We supplied a metal frame. A pour-in-place job with a design this small (5′ in diameter) is challenging.

The customer was very satisfied with the outcome!

Elegant, Contemporary Medallion for Designer’s Home

Designer Sonia Bendt knew that an oval medallion would be perfect for the oval foyer in her own Arizona penthouse. This shape is hard to find, so she turned to me at Creative Edge for a custom job.

“As a designer, I believe that an entrance should have an impact,” said Sonia. “The best way to do it is by featuring a dramatic, eye-catching medallion that coordinates with the architecture.”

Sonia designed the medallion and chose the stone colors from Creative Edge’s palette. The medallion flatters the Bendts’ 3,190-sq-ft. home, inspired by contemporary furniture designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

“My designs tend to be elegant and streamlined. I like to create environments that homeowners can relax in and love to entertain in. ” – Sonia Bendt

Sonia attended The New York School of Interior Design and combined her interior design work with real estate sales.

You can read more about the Bendt’s home in Arizona Foothills Magazine.

Detailed Tapestry “Rug” in Stone

What does it take to transform an elaborate carpet design into an exquisitely detailed stone rug? The art of tapestry uses tiny tufts of soft fabric structured in a mesh backing. Marble, on the contrary, is extracted from the earth in chunks of solid rock. Only modern waterjet technology, controlled by a computer, could do justice to this detailed design.
