Re-Creating Broken Ceramic Floor Tiles
This block of wood was cut to the shape of these antique tiles, coated with Milestone Cement Plaster, and grouted into place. Can you tell which ones are real and which are duplicates?

Building a Giant Boulder
The large stone on top of this fireplace is not real. It was fabricated with Milestone Cement Plaster on cement board, then grouted into place. All work was done on site. No heavy
boulders to transport!
Privately owned island in the San Juan Islands, Washington.
If you are creative and enjoy sculpting with lath and plaster, Milestone Cement Plaster can used to build almost anything. Functional and decorative items can be created and installed in your home or garden. Benches, birdbaths, and garden sculptures are a few examples.
Small scale private tutoring sessions are available at my studio. I also teach groups willing to provide their own studio.
