Clayworks Clay Plasters are unique blends of unfired clays mixed with minerals and pigments to provide healthy, breathable finishes for internal walls and ceilings.
Manufactured in Cornwall from abundant raw materials, they are amongst the most low carbon and healthy wall finishes available.
Our Clay Finishes come in two Categories: the Classic Finishes and the Custom Finishes. The Classic Finishes include tonal variations, textures, thicknesses and depth and are as versatile as they are sumptuously beautiful.
The Custom Clay Finishes epitomise the art of the possible and the materiality of clay plaster can be used to achieve unique effects. All of our clay plasters are suitable for wall and ceiling surfaces, and are available in 88 Standard Colours as well as Bespoke Colours.
We created Rammed Earth finishes in reverence to the Clay, Earth and Mineral elements which are the foundation of our work. Throughout time and in almost all areas of the world humans have created shelters and homes from the earth and landscape around them. The layering of colour and texture inspire a sense of both gravity and an intimacy with the natural landscape.
As well as being natural, Clayworks Clay Plasters are also high performance. Regulating relative humidity naturally, they allow buildings to breath while absorbing toxins, odours and sound. They also help to regulate temperature passively and are easily repaired. Application requires the same skills and tools as other wall plasters.
Clayworks Clay Plasters provide a unique aesthetic with a depth of colour, tone and texture not found in conventional wall finishes. Capable of a seamless finish, our clay plasters are ready mixed in a wide range of mineral colours with extraordinary textures, from the luxurious silky and velvety smooth, to the deeply coarse and rustic.
