THE VISUAL CONCRETE GROUP

As The Visual Concrete Group, the concretist, Colormaker, Concreation and Bay Area Concretes have formed a unique alliance. We support, consult and often joint venture with each other on installations.

Colormaker
Owned by mad genius Gary Jones, Colormaker is our primary source of colors. Gary’s Pentimento and Sgraffino lines are the only skims (overlays), we’ve seen, that actually work. Gary, on what we all do: “Work should be viewed as exploration, rather than accomplishment, and discovery, rather than achievement… Then, anything is possible!”

Bay Area Concretes
For as long as I can remember, Bay Area Concretes has been producing the most innovative decorative and architectural concrete around. Our relationship began with Gary Price while I (Mike Miller) was with L.M. Scofield in the 80’s, and now continues with his son Mike Price, and Mike’s two ultra experienced partners, Shawn Devine (who placed a huge portion of Disneyland’s decorative concrete), and Jonathan Vasquez (innovator of the hybrid site concrete / decorative concrete model). These guys are also distributors of Aggretex exotic aggregate products and are Concreation and Colormaker’s Western U.S. distributor.
