My husband and I initially started off as a dynamic duo, selling concrete coasters locally at festivals and slowly began partnerships with one shop, two shops, three shops, more. As he taught me the ropes, and I honed in on the craft, we expanded our line of concrete wares to include trivets, salt cellars, spoon rests, cheeseboards, and more. We quickly outgrew our in-house operation, and created a studio space to help create and operate on a larger scale. Mike decided to reset and return to his original passion - building and making furniture and I decided to take over the concrete side of the biz. And thus a new meaning for MDC was born-Mona Does Concrete and Mike Does Carpentry. Of course, we continue to support each other and work as a team and are constantly bouncing ideas off of each other, but I have such great pride in making executive decisions and being a #girlboss. I love working with concrete because it has a raw and industrial feel that communicates earthiness and a strong sense of foundation and stability. I also appreciate the versatility of the medium, and the limitless shapes and textures that can be created. -Mona
