When we learn about a precast concrete company; whose work just blows us away, we like to share it.
Dura Art Stone's About Us page, Enjoy.
Dura Art Stone traces its history to 1935 when Bruno Mariani, an accomplished Italian model maker and craftsman, quickly established himself as a leading source of Ornamental Cast Plaster and Cast Stone in San Francisco, CA. One of Bruno’s early works at the Pulgas Water Temple in Redwood City, CA, completed in 1941, remains beautiful and functional to this day. From the start, we have pioneered new uses of materials as outlined below.
