Rex J. Pratt
Artisan Plaster Inc is a manufacturer of Decorative Plaster products. The company was founded by Master Artisan Rex J. Pratt. Rex has been applying and creating specialty finishes and products for nearly 40 years.
Our Marmorino Venetian Plaster was the first product that Rex developed many years ago. As an artisan he was asked to do a Venetian Plaster finish on a residence in Beverly Hills at a time when Venetian Plaster products were not easily available in the US. So he got on a plane and flew to Italy and spent a week in Tuscany exploring ancient finishes. When he returned he created his own aged Lime Plaster. A few improvements came over the next few years until a perfected formula was achieved. For many years now Rex has been using his Venetian Plaster exclusively for the clients of his company Rex J. Pratt Inc. Artisan Plaster products are now found in some of the most expensive homes in the World. It is specified by some of the World’s best Interior Designers and Architects. He has also created a variety of incredible materials that complement our Marmorino finish.
Now Rex has created Artisan Plaster Inc to bring these amazing material to the public. While we are the manufacturer of these products, currently we are also the retail outlet for all our products. We feel that we can offer the best pricing by dealing direct with Artisans interested in using our materials. We offer direct support with all our products. You will find a growing video library on this site showing many of the techniques that Rex has developed throughout his career. We are proud to be a US made product. While much is touted of the imported materials, and rightfully so, we know that all of our products match or exceed the qualities of any material that you put it up against. Rex has personally formulated all of our products. In doing so care was taken to create authentic finish materials while also creating materials that are user friendly.
