The creation of a medallion

We thought that there might be some interest in the process of making a medallion.

We first try to choose interesting stones

We then cut the stone into the needed shapes

From there we put the design together on a mesh

After completion we store the design until picked up by the tile contractor.

Because of the size of some medallions, it is sometimes necessary to install the medallion in parts.

This last few weeks we have been making small marble inserts for installations in hallways and bathrooms. The marble medallions still take most of our time, it is nice to make some smaller designs. Corwin at the sawHever working on a Plasma Star

Medallion Masters

Medallion Master  Creative Cuttingmedallion master As one of the major importers of porcelain tile in Las Vegas we have often tried to soft-pedal the custom marble designs that we make at our shop. The thought process was that creating our medallions and inserts is time consuming and often siphons away time that we need to spend on developing our core business of selling tile. This spring we made a decision that we would open the curtain and let people see what we create. The success we have had in this endeavor is humbling and we thank those people that have allowed us to create something for their home.
