|Meet the concrete artist.|
Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 41. Brandon Boetto.
Brandon Boetto's in transition.
The Old Town Scottsdale-based concrete artist is in the midst of building a new office and showroom space for Slabhaus, his custom concrete company that specializes in sinks, tables, and furniture among other home décor items. While Boetto hasn't revealed many hard details about the fresh setup, he does estimate that the new spot will be finished up in about a month. For now, that means working at coffee shops to handle business logistics in the morning and then heading to the workshop to continue projects -- like the two conference tables he's currently working on for local architecture firms.
"From there, each and every moment of my day is filled with the sounds of saws, concrete mixers, loud music and lots of dust," Boetto says. "I'll eat dinner somewhere in that mix and then head back to the shop to continue working into the night."More »
