Design On The Gulf

Scagliola stone, unlike anything else available in the marketplace today, is skillfully formed and finished by hand, achieving a natural stone texture of amazing clarity and depth.

Unlike the process used to produce common cast stone, a process involving pouring liquid concrete into molds, Scagliola Stone is developed entirely by hand.

Such fine craftsmanship provides Scagliola stone with the integrity, consistency and appearance of authentic stone. The word "scagliola" derives from the Italian "scaglia", which means "scales or chips of stone".

Italian monks principally developed this technique in the 17th Century, later duplicated by Italian and French craftsmen who applied Scagliola stone to many architectural applications.

The formula used to achieve this authentic stone technique was kept extremely secretive, and as a result, the Italian craft had all but disappeared by the late 19th Century.
