Nathan Giffin was officialy introduced January 18th at the World of Concrete event in 2008.    I was a guest artist at the artistry event opening eyes and doors to the Vertical Artisans concept. This is a site designed to illustrate the methods, styles, and techniques of stone facing. I had been developing the site from 2006 - 2007.   I wanted to offer an incredible aid to fellow artisans who had a desire like I did for this craft.  Giving artists something that I did not have many years ago was in fact a great personel goal of mine.    Having access to the rare data that I so desperately searched for but could rarely find was the primary goal.  To this day I still record all my projects and innovations that are added to the site almost as soon as I complete them. I have no desire to stop adding value to my site.  Welcome and enjoy the art of Hand Carved Vertical Decorative Concrete. se presentó oficialmente el 18 de enero en el evento World of Concrete en 2008. Fui artista invitado en el 
evento artístico abriendo los ojos y las puertas al concepto de Artesanos Verticales. Este es un sitio diseñado para ilustrar
los métodos, estilos y técnicas de revestimiento de piedra. Había estado desarrollando el sitio desde 2006 hasta 2007.
Quería ofrecer una ayuda increíble a otros artesanos que tenían un deseo como yo para este oficio. Dar a los artistas algo que
no tenía hace muchos años fue, de hecho, un gran objetivo personal mío. Tener acceso a los datos raros que buscaba tan
desesperadamente pero que rara vez podía encontrar era el objetivo principal. Hasta el día de hoy sigo registrando todos
mis proyectos e innovaciones que se agregan al sitio casi tan pronto como los complete. No deseo dejar de agregar valor a mi
sitio. Dé la bienvenida y disfrute del arte del hormigón decorativo vertical tallado a mano.
