Do you enjoy making sandcastles? Do your mashed potatoes become fine art before you eat them? If you enjoy working with your hands and being outdoors, you'll love sand-casting with concrete. Veteran concrete creator Bo Atkinson shares his passion and experience in this wonderful step-by-step pictorial. Starting with a pile of sand, a pile of gravel, some water, cement, and reinforcement, he demonstrates how simple it can be to create anything you fancy from concrete. His projects include a fairy lantern, a birdbath, a toadstool seat, a bench, and even a small footbridge.
Bo Atkinson practices concrete artistry and architecture from his home in Maine. Tina Skinner is an award-winning writer and editor with a fascination for concrete.
