Hello all! Happy New Year!
I've been a lurker on this list for over 2 years now I think. But perhaps now is the time to come out of the
shadows. I'm a landscape designer by trade and I've been living in Shanghai, China for the past 4 years
working for the profession. ?Just yesterday I was working on some signage (wayfinding) designs which
make considerable use of stone, when I was trying to describe a particular finish or type of stone that I
just didn't know how to describe professionally. I'm sure there's a term for what we want to achieve but I
just don't know it! I need to brush up on my stone knowledge. So, why not ask this list? :)
So, how would you describe a rough, unfinished stone exterior that was then sliced open and whose surface
looked like it was sandblasted to a uniform, but different, color? And then it was engraved and painted
with enamel paint? Such as this:
Also, as the www.aboutstone.org <http://www.aboutstone.org> website seems to be a fake German blog at
the moment, can anyone share any other resources for architectural stone, dimensioned or otherwise? Or
does anyone have a favorite book they like to reference?
