Italian Plaster Works
Ayn RiggsWhen someone loves their space, whether commercial or residential, that vibe permeates. Getting to be a part of that gives us joy as well. As an activist in the world of sustainability, knowing that we are applying natural materials that benefit a space’s air quality furthers my passion. We’ve been in business for 17 years now and are always excited to fulfill the vision of our clients whether they are in the Midwest or beyond.
As an artist, decorative painter and sculptor, it has been my privilege to collaborate with accomplished designers, contractors and clients for over 40 years. Part art and part skill, the mixing, combining and layering of media creates an endless repertoire of finishes. The classic finishes are wood graining, marbling, gilding, wall glazing and antiquing. Since each project is both an expression of the designer’s intent as well as a unique work of art, these techniques turn these visions into reality. As important as these skills are, it is the ability of problem solving — which can save a client tens of thousands of dollars and enormous amounts of time — makes a space seem as though nothing was painted at all while solving the problem. This ability to “fool the eye” is actually a vital part of this time honored craft. The diverse body of projects speaks not only to the uniqueness of each situation, but to the importance that this type of work has to the design trade.

22 Venetian Plaster Designs
“22 Venetian plaster designs were born with the idea of Ricardo Leveratto, who trained in Europe, of showing through his work the extraordinary Venetian art to the world. Ricardo has become part of the Firenzecolor / Novacolor family since 2022. By giving exclusivity, we create styles that emphasize Venetian patterns and make the effects of lights and colors according to the atmosphere you want to represent outdoors and indoors. The Venetian plaster used on the walls is imported from Italy. An advantage is 100% eco-friendly, which means you will have a toxin-free environment since the technique absorbs harmful carbon dioxide from the air and regulates humidity. Let us be the change your wall deserved! “
