Japanese Plastering

Visit from Japanese plaster craftsman Keisuke Noda of Noda Plaster Works & Kyle Holzhueter

Our third opportunity to work with Japanese craftsmen with the visit of a young man named Keisuke Noda who was brought to us by young American, Kyle Holzhueter, who was studying in Japan, to complete a PhD in Sustainable Development.

A great thing about the Japanese is that their plastering skills are truly marvelous and their understanding of clay very thorough. You really can’t watch them enough, their application skills are unequaled. Noda-san did not disappoint in providing us a great demonstration of basic plastering skills as well as revealing a number of very finely finished and highly polished lime plasters.
