Cleave -- most pieces are generally collaborative efforts) produce artistic
creations from concrete, concrete overlay materials, and concrete stains.

outdoors, each one with its own unique
characteristics. From simple white skulls, to ornate
kitty cats, to creatures belonging to no particular
classification, these items evolve fron the artists' mind
and mood.Many are adorned with estate sale jewels and
recycled products. All have fun, whimsical
personalities -- you are sure to find one that wants to
go home with you.
A group known as "Pot-Heads" are formed
in molds, with terra cotta pots attached.
These pieces are stained with concrete
stain, then embellished with estate sale
jewels, glasses, and recycled products.
Put in a plant and these strange
characters are ready to adorn your deck,
porch, patio, or to make a unique
statement as a planter inside. Lots of
folks have that one special family member
these make great gifts for!
Framed art pieces are designed to be used indoors or outdoors.
Artists' inspirations vary from piece to piece, and no consistency
in genre ever seems to emerge. From modern/contemporary to
rustic tuscan, 50's Graphic line drawings to Navaho rugs, and from
animals to nudes, these framed pieces reflect the many and varied
interests of the artists.
We are sure you will find something you love!
