Stone with Character: Cobbled Finishes from The CleftStone Works

For projects that call for a strong, chiseled look and appealing texture, cobbled finishes from The CleftStone Works produce just the right surface. Cobbling can affect the play of light and shadow on the stone in a really attractive way. It also affects corners and edges for a more distressed appearance than softer finishes provide — it's a nice alternative to tumbling. Combine it with brushing to produce a handsome “antiqued” look that’s perfect in traditional designs. The usual minimum size for a cobbled finish is 6 x 6, though it can be applied to smaller tiles; we can apply it in any of our larger sizes up to 24 x 24.
