The Natural Stone Show 2015.
Last month we exhibited at our first trade show - The Natural Stone Show 2015. Exhibits included a vast range of stone from all over the world - granite, marble, limestone, sandstone, travertine and slate for use in all types of work - flooring, cladding, hard landscaping, kitchens, bathrooms, roofing, fireplaces, memorials and sculpture together with fixing systems, sealants, adhesives, cleaning materials, stone working machinery, tooling and other related products and services. We were the only company at the show offering a sub-contract Water Jet cutting service to both the public & trade. 

The show had a great turnout and we welcomed the opportunity to meet other exhibitors and make some new fantastic contacts that we have already begun working with.

The Natural Stone Show 2015


Aqua Dynamics Ltd Employs a 16th Century Technique with 20th Century Technology. 
'Pietra dura'  or ' pietre dure'  is a term for the  inlay  technique of using cut and fitted, highly polished coloured stone to create images and geometric patterns.  It is considered a  decorative art

The stonework, after the work is assembled loosely, is glued stone-by-stone to a substrate after having previously been "sliced and cut in different shape sections; and then assembled together so precisely that the contact between each section is practically invisible". Many different coloured stones, particularly  marbles , were used, along with  semiprecious , and even  precious stones . It first appeared in  Rome  in the 16th century.

Aqua Dynamics Ltd are capable of producing the same results with the Water Jet cutting process. Water Jet technology can now allow us to produce these incredibly detailed designs with high tolerance's in a fraction of the time and a fraction of the cost. The images below of a Border Pattern and Central Medallion that we recently designed and cut before bonding together and surface polishing display the incredible detail and high tolerances that can be achieved when cutting Natural Stone.
