Tadelakt Countertop

Eugene, Oregon

This countertop is created with a traditional Moroccan plaster system called Tadelakt. It's a waterproof lime-based plaster that is heavily burnished with a small smooth stone and black-olive oil soap. Great for wet areas, including shower stalls. Traditionally, this technique is used to make public fountains and water features.

This particular installation is pigmented with American Clay's pigment, Palomino Valley.
