"I began collaborating with Budri on various Fashion Brand Store projects and they really surprised me with their ability to work with marble. For the first time in my experience the finished product was even more beautiful than our renderings, and I was able to explore my creativity with some very complex processes. Always looking to innovate and to amaze. An excellent start I’d say."
