Pargetting – Decorative beams in a residential project (Cotswolds, England)

Collaboration with:

Johanna Welsh

Pargetting - a traditional English craft. With natural and flowing design.

All the mouldings and relieves were created in situ shaping the fresh lime mortar. With this technique all the ornamental elements are different without repetition, every single leaf in individual and as its own movement. It gives us this artisanal and hand made look. It fits very nicely with the date and the shape of the building itself.
