Immediately attracted to an identical object that I saw on the floor of a hardware store - demonstrating the numerous applications of a new adhesive – I was overcome with the desire to make one myself.
Sourcing the exact same materials and arranging them in identical configurations I gave myself five attempts to come close; each element, including the mixing of the concrete, prepared and applied in sequence.
