A family run business in Kent : Quality fibrous plaster and external cast stone mouldings since 1976

Cast stone garden portico

This decorative portico makes an impressive addition to the garden of a London home. To produce this large cast stone garden ornament, we worked in partnership with Aztec Modelmakers. Plasterite was responsible for producing all models, moulds and final casts as well as assisting with installing the portico on site in Grosvenor Square.

Each section of the construction was made from Jesmonite AC730, a popular product for external plaster mouldings that replicates different types of stone. The casts are strengthened using quadaxial glass fibres to produce something that is durable and lightweight yet looks and feels like natural stone. Jesmonite AC730 is available in a range of colours; in this case Portland Stone was used, and it is very good for creating detailed or complex shapes which would be time consuming and expensive using quarry stone.
