Ornamental Plasterwork Design

Our talented and experienced in-house designers and sculptors produce some truly stunning plasterwork.

Hayles and Howe have workshops and offices in the UK in Bristol and Crediton, Devon, and in the USA at Baltimore, Maryland .

Our a talented team of designers and modellers with more than thirty years of experience. The team is dedicated to fulfilling any design brief the company receives. If you have an idea and are not sure how to make it happen, please contact us.

The company’s modellers and sculptors are well versed in the historical styles be it a delicate Adam centrepiece, Gothic boss or Art Nouveau stem. Our designers can also make use of the many details and mouldings that have been acquired over many years of restoration of historic buildings. This can avoid the expense of new custom-made mouldings. We also supply a range of Jacobean and Georgian style ceilings which are shown in this catalogue.

Over the years the company has been involved in both the restoration and conservation of many Adam Ceilings. In 2006 the company embarked on a major new build project in Pueblo Colorado USA that was a reproduction of the Library at Kenwood House in North London and the ante room at Syon House, West London. The project involved a complete design programme, remodelling and manufacture of the barrel vault ceiling, mirror ornament and statues; also new digital copies of the original paintings by Antonio Zucchi.

Pueblo, Colorado – Case Study

As massive fans of the architect Robert Adam, the Hayles and Howe team were delighted to be asked to re-create two complex interiors of his for our client in Colorado. The project involved both our UK and US teams, from design to manufacture of the ornamental plaster work and scagliola.

House of Muses – Case Study

Hayles and Howe were commissioned to create a structure for contemplation for the Museum of London as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2014. The team relished using their skills creating a modern installation with a render finish and our own plaster work and scagliola.
