Our Concrete Artisans
We are Artisans in the ancient art of sculpting & staining concrete. Providing custom decorative concrete projects in and around Austin, Texas & the Central Texas Hill Country.
If you are longing for something solid, something that will last forever, concrete is your answer.
Concrete’s mass can not be duplicated by synthetic plastics, Marble in the same mass would be prohibitively expensive.
If you like the distinctive and variegated nature of leather. If you want to have something unique, something with your own flare and custom built to match your decor and color scheme, concrete might be for you.
Concrete is the “greenest” building material.
Ancient Art Concrete is a division of Concrete Countertops Inc. Formed by Greg Bright in 2006.
Greg grew up in the family Ace Hardware stores in Houston, Texas. Greg started his entrepreneurial journey at an early age – under the leadership of his father (Jack Bright) Greg learned basic construction skills and how to be a good entrepreneur “Dad Always said we had to “Love the Customer to Death” “.
In 1992 Greg left the family business to go to work for Ace Hardware Corporate – setting up and consulting Ace stores all over the State of Texas.
In 2006 Greg left “Big” Corporate America to pursue his dreams and has never looked back.
Today, Greg has partnered with other concrete countertop artisans to bring a combined 25 years experience – sharing the secrets of strong and beautiful concrete, the team has been making beautiful countertops and concrete elements.
Greg resides in South Austin with his two dogs Dock and Lulu.
This customer wanted an apothecary look. We suggested the Buddy Rhodes Bone White color with a hard troweled finish.
We designed and installed everything, including the medicine cabinets, lighting and towel fixtures. We also stained and modified two 36 inch “off the shelf”, red oak kitchen cabinets, making them reminiscent of the era. Tapered furniture legs were used instead of spacers to bridge the cabinets. Therefore, making it appear like a piece of furniture in which the 2” thick countertop was done cast in place.
The customer also specified needing more storage space. So we used kitchen cabinets at 24” depth, and the taller height is actually proving to be more ergonomic for these average height customers.
To squeeze even more storage space out of the area, we used American Standard vessel sinks that were half above and half below the countertop. This left just enough room to run the drain pipe and supply lines right between the two drawers on each cabinet. Therefore, all 4 drawers are fully functional
Bring us your ideas, we’ll make them a reality
