When I was looking at what to use to cover over the beige walls of the open living/dining/great room as we remodeled our home, one of the products I looked at was American Clay, a non-toxic earth plaster made in the United States. I had first seen a sample board of this beautiful product ( in Loma, Lomalina, Marittimo, Porcelina and Enjare formulas) about three years ago when I was exploring Green Depot in Portland, Oregon.
Later, I went to a workshop at Green Conscience Home in Saratoga Springs, New York where I was able to mix and apply American Clay to large drywall samples. Truth be told, the cost (oh, I had a lot of square footage to cover!) and labor involved was a little daunting to me, and I went with Mythic Paint, instead.
This is the beautiful Hollcroft Residence, west of Forest Heights in Portland, Oregon by Giulietti/Schouten Architects. (The original plans for the home included a concrete accent wall – but American Clay was used instead over drywall.)
I am going to guess that Enjarre, the American Clay formula with the “roughest” finish was trowelled on. The clay base comes in large bags and is mixed with water, and the colors are mixed in as smaller bags of pigments. This grey shade looks like it could be “Ashland” which would be a combination of Wildhorse Smoke and Savannah pigments (got to love the names they came up with for the pigments!). What a fabulous feel this wall of rough grey adds to the room.
