Scagliola [from the Italian scaglia, meaning ‘chips’ is a technique for producing stucco columns, sculptures, and other architectural elements that resemble inlays in marble and semi precious stones.
abound in scagliola columns that look
like marble but ain’t – if they are cold to the touch, they are marble, if not
they are scagliola. It is versatile –
under used – you seldom find marble to equal what scagliola can do! Italy
Some examples of where I have used scagliola:
|A yali on the Bosphorus in Istanbul |
**** see January 2012 issue of The World of Interiors****
|A JS designed lamp base|
|A fireplace for contemporary house|
|Detail of a fireplace in a country house|
..Available in 80 colours no less!
