No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


If you have ever wanted to sculpt or build in a permanent material that is extremely strong and can be moulded to any shape, ferrocement is the medium for you - and this concise book shows you how to do it all.

Tools, techniques and sample projects - a garden pot, angel, dome, and more - are all logically described and illustrated. The many photos showing the building of Cafe Eutopia by the author and his family will inspire as well as inform, while the introduction and 'Origins' story and updates on the progress of a ferrocement cafe and 'temple' to Love, Beauty, Truth, and Freedom add a deeper dimension to this book which shows the struggle to marry an abstract ideal with a (literally) concrete realisation.
