Scagliola looks just like marble but more adaptable and not so heavy !
We use traditional techniques and materials to make Scagliola very much as it was made over two hundred years ago in England
Scagliola is made from pigmented gypsum. Plaster of Paris is mixed with earth or mineral pigments to produce colour. It is usually mixed by one of many techniques so that it resembles natural marble or granite. The work is then polished to a marble-like finish.
The Scagliola researchers, myself included, have worked since the 1970’s to bring about a revival of the craft, essentially to enable the conservation of the existing 18th century work, but in the process to find new ways to employ the material, which has such a grand and fascinating lineage.
Our work results in valuable pieces of craftsmanship following a tradition rooted in the mists of history.
