Plaster & Drywall

A dying trade, plaster was replaced by drywall in 1963. Since that time there have been few who have learned the secrets from the old artisans.

I had the privilege of learning this trade from Ralph who began his work as an apprentice at a the age of 15. Since '63 I am the only one to whom he has taught the trade.


Venetian Plaster

Venetian Plaster" or "Italian Plaster" usually refers to a polished plaster, either lime or resin. In Italy, the term "Venetian Plaster" is not used; the plasters are called "Decorative Stuccos".

Many people call them faux finish, but because these are true plasters, not faux, they should be referred to as Italian Plaster, Venetian Plaster or Decorative Stucco.


Major Restoration Jobs

Additionally, our company has taken on restoration work that although smaller in scope than the jobs referenced above, are equally as challenging for a skilled restoration expert.

For example, in the photo below we restored the plaster in a dining room ceiling then applied 4 of these plaster medallions in the four corners of the room.
