Scagliola is a technique that creates imitation marble and precious stonework utilizing plaster. This decorative finish is often found in sacred spaces, government. and commercial buildings, and is part of many design, historic restoration, and preservation projects.
In this exacting process, our craftspeople create a plaster composite from gypsum or selenite, binders, and pigments which is applied to columns, walls and other features on site. Different hues are veined through the material, to simulate a marble-like appearance. Alternatively, a scagliola slab, can be created, patterns and designs can be carved from it, and the carved areas can be filled with other colors creating decorative inlay patterns and mosaic-like designs.
We have refined this traditional technique for implementing scagliola directly on-site with exceptional accuracy, quality, and durability.
