Meet the Maker!
Hi! I am Elizabeth, creator of Concrete Theory! I am constantly inspired by design & culture around me. Concrete Theory began as a weekend project in a time when I was experimenting with a new medium each week. I was living in Austin, Texas when I planned to try something different each week for a few months. Two weeks in, I fell in love with concrete. I have always loved puzzles and problem solving. Mixing concrete and using recycled and found objects as molds for my work is the ultimate puzzle!
The process often times begins when I least expect it. A take-out container, an item at the grocery store, or a trip to Home Depot have been known to spark an idea in me! I begin with finding the exterior mold for the object that I want to creste. These vessels range from milk cartons, to to-go containers, coffee cups to gift boxes. The puzzle component comes in next when I need to find a smaller, interior vessel. When the molds have been designated, I hand mix the concrete and pour it into the forms to set. Waiting until the concrete has cured is crucial and releasing the item from its vessel is very satisfying!
We love Concrete Theory!
We just got two of the most perfect mini pots from Concrete Theory, and our succulents look so gosh darn cute in them...!"
These concrete planters from Concrete Theory style just perfectly in my space! Love the pops of copper on them."
