Plaster remnants

Artist Carin Gerard's living room in California contains several large plaster remnants that were salvaged from the ceiling of an old French castle. 

Aren't they wonderful?

Here are a couple close-ups:

Over in Oxfordshire, England, James Perkins became entranced with plaster remnants when he was a teenager and has been collecting ever since. He is now sharing his extensive collection in a country house that he has restored. Aynhoe Park is open for special events rentals. 

How cool would that be to have a party amidst the history? 

Nine new casts, taken from the originals, are now available at The Conran Shop.

  1. Old English plaster, from late Latin plastrum, shortened from Classical Latin emplastrum (“a plaster, bandage”); later reinforced by Anglo-Norman plaistre.
