ARTISAN TECHNIQUE SPOTLIGHT: FLUTED PLASTER

SuperStrata is honored to partner with Patrick Shoemaker of NYC Decorative Arts: in addition to his many talents he also creates stunning finishes for our custom fluted plaster panels, he also creates his own pulled-in-place flutes. Flutes can be pulled in place on-site, hand-cast for coves and curved surfaces, or bench run in a studio as panels and brought on location to be installed. After the panels are attached to the wall and ceiling, any adjustments are made so that the seams are flawless before any finishes are applied—a process called pointing.

Below are a few examples of our custom fluting for some of our design clients, as well as Patrick's work alongside SuperStrata.
