If you found this page

You may be looking for a concrete artist, and that is what I am.
For more pictures, references, and a proposal on your kitchen, bath, or yard/garden project, please call or write brilheaint AT yahoo DOT com
Leaving a comment here will help too.

I have made Kitchen Counter tops, both natural, and polished to a high gloss. Also bird baths, ponds, fountains, and table tops. I love this work.

The possibilities are many, colors, exposed aggregate, hard troweled. Many ways to enhance your living space with the durability and beauty of decorative concrete. I work in Big Bear Valley, where I can stay close to the trees, the hiking trails and far from the madding crowds.

my own island

I am going to design and make a new island top for my own kitchen
it will be ALL ME, big, strong, colorful, and irregular in shape.
It will serve well in a small but busy kitchen and replace the temporary
island top - (wood, made from a discarded dining room table)
will post pics when I get it started

mom is well ( enough)

the wedding is tomorrow evening
we have an abundance of things left to do
we have many willing and able hands to do these tasks
and ALL are saying, " it will all be fine"
so why don't you say that too
and make me feel better

God bless you

If you never did anything that scared you,
if you never attempted something totally new,
life would consist of repeating the same steps
and never feeling that "edge of the diving board" thrill.

Go, do exciting things.
Learn, if even by your mistakes.
Live a life which will make for good stories when you are old.
