Girasole Cast Copper inlaid Border

Created from Sandcasted Copper, then expertly inlaid into Black polished marble

Each Copper segment has been sand cast individually. Not one piece is the same. These cast copper segments are assembled together before they are set into depression created in the Black Limestone. We think this modern take on the inlay technique is rather fun. What is unstoppable is the tarnishing of the metal (copper) which will create a beautiful patina over time.

Use as a border or create an interesting composition with this unique border.

We can, as with most of the De Ferranti product ranges, combine other materials and substrates to the clients specifications.

More about Borders:

By incorporating a border and a feature strip to your marble, stone, or wood floor installation, it is a sophisticated way to show off your artistic side and create a floor that is unique to you. The simplest of flooring can be lifted by the use of borders, medallions or accent pieces.

De Ferranti's Border collection takes many forms. Materials range from Marble, Limestone, Vocanic Tuff, Rare Porphyry's (Imperial Porphyry, Porfido Antico, Porfido Imperiale) and Serpentines, to Antique Rare materials such as Giallo Antico. Other materials on offer are metals (brass, alpaca, copper bronze, steel, iron), bone and horn, inlays, mosaic, the list is endless.

Materials can be combined and may also incorporate fragments of the field material to tie in the border with the floor. A border is a very clever way of creating sections within rooms or the installation as a whole. Often wood floors with a stone border or vice versa work in perfect harmony to create that necessary linkage between materials and surrounding rooms.

The various disciplines used in the De Ferranti Border collection is wide. Dsiciplines include Stone Mosaic, Marble Mosaic, Glass Mosaic, Pebble Mosaic, Micromosaic, Marble Inlay, Hardstone Inlay, Pietre Dure, Overlay, Instarsio, Scagliola, Cosmati, Opus Sectile, Waterjet (ie. machine cut), combinations of the materials described.
