Gather Co Texture Guide

Here at Gather Co we want to ensure that the gap between your screen and our surfaces is bridged. As such, we have developed this Texture Guide to provide a general understanding of the finishes across our collection and to offer a sense of the ‘feel’ you can expect from each variety.

*Please note: This is intended as a guide only. Some surfaces may sit outside the prescribed finish as stated below. It is not a Slip Rating, you’ll find that in the “Resources and Installation” section at the bottom of each product page.

Type of Finish
1
Polished A mirror-like shine accomplished by using progressively finer grit during the polishing process.
2
Brushed Brush finishing involves exposing stone surfaces to a rotating wire brush, simulating natural wear over time.
2
Honed A honed finish is achieved by applying a polishing head with a coarse grit fitting.
2
Sawn After initial cutting, the stone is lightly polished to remove the heaviest saw marks but, not enough to achieve a fully honed finish.
3
Acid Washed Acid washing is an exfoliation process where a chemical reaction is used to flake away at the stone’s surface.
3
Flamed A flamed finish is achieved through heating the surface of stone to extreme temperatures, followed by a rapid cooling process – leaving a textured, unrefined consistency.
3
Sand Blasted Sand blasting is the process of forcibly propelling streams of course material against a stone surface to smoothen or roughen it.
4
Chisseled A chiselled finish is achieved when metal combs are run over stone to form a unified grooved surface.
4
Natural A natural finish refers to stone in its raw state. It is reached through a combination of various geological conditions and prolonged environmental/atmospheric exposure.
1,2,3,4
Tumbled Tumbling is a secondary process applied in addition to one of the primary finishes. It is used to alter the edge detail of stone and typically results in reduced surface coarseness. Most commonly, tumbling is achieved by combining both stone pieces and aggregate inside a rotating rubber lined.
5
Bush Hammered This process employs either simple hand-held hammers or large electric implements. The method works through repeated surface impacts with a large metal slug made up of uniformed conical points.
5
Convict Picked A traditional stone treatment historically undertaken by convicts in Australia where steel crafting tools are repeatedly struck against the stone surface to achieve a moderate to heavily textured finish.
5
Split Splitting is achieved by mechanically or hand fragmenting stone, exposing a natural cleft and heavily textured finish.

More Information

Origin

Bikaner - A city with considerable royal heritage, Bikaner grew from humble origins to become one of the Indian state of Rajasthan’s largest cities. The completion of the Ganges Canal alleviated the effect of drought in Bikaner and allowed it to flourish with forts and temples a lasting monument to its prestige.

Material

Low Fired Clay - Offering malleable workability and a resistance to shrinking or warping, low-fire clays are divided into two types; dark and white. The very definition of “low-fire” is determined by the temperature at which the clay matures, usually between 927⁰ and 1093⁰ C.
