Wall Art All About 'Sustaining Life' at 2019 Decorative Concrete LIVE!

The 6-by-8-foot wall art — titled “Sustaining Life” — intertwined the elements of sun, water, earth, fire, air, nature, light and dark. “All things needed to sustain life on earth,” Lundin says.

Using recycled and natural material, artisan Cindee Lundin worked her magic once again during Decorative Concrete LIVE! at the 2019 World of Concrete.

The 6-by-8-foot wall art — titled “Sustaining Life” — intertwined the elements of sun, water, earth, fire, air, nature, light and dark. “All things needed to sustain life on earth,” Lundin says.

From sunup to sundown, the artisans stamped and engraved, stained and waxed, embedded and buffed, and carved and caressed recycled materials along with cement, natural stone, epoxy, foam and mica.

With the untiring help and dedication of her trio of helpers — Johanne Leclaire of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; Arlene Mazzocco Gallitto of Cleveland, Ohio; and Anthony Kurowski of Annandale, Minnesota — Lundin orchestrated a lively mix of everything from faux bois and stacked stone to mosaic stones and post-consumer recycled glass from far (Turkey) and near (Nevada). The small rocks the team painstakingly hand-colored were also made from recycled glass.

From sunup to sundown, the artisans stamped and engraved, stained and waxed, embedded and buffed, and carved and caressed recycled materials along with cement, natural stone, epoxy, foam and mica. The centerpiece comprised overlapping super-thin wood-textured concrete “bowls” that Lundin made ahead of time and combined with a real geode to make a striking focal point.

“The soft palette represents natural earth colors that come together to create calm and peace in a busy world,” Lundin says. Overall, she says, they hoped they portrayed that “The world is worth saving, one art piece at a time.”
