Artisanal Finishes for an Artisanal Ice-Cream Brand

Paul Ballen is an artisanal ice-cream producer in Johannesburg. Every flavour of Paul's Homemade Ice-Cream is handmade with small batches of fresh and carefully selected, high quality ingredients, with a total absence of synthetic additives and chemicals. Like any other gourmet cuisine, they see ice cream as an art and they treat their art with respect, without cutting corners. They believe that the legitimacy of their craftsmanship is based on the undivided and “hands on” attention that every batch of ice-cream receives through the production process. At Cemcrete we also value the craftsmanship of applying a cement-based finish and therefore it was the perfect choice for the finishes of the stores in Rivonia and Hyde Park. Enjoy the droolworthy tour.
