American Clay natural earth plaster products are a healthy and creative solution for beautiful interiors. Our gorgeous, sustainable clay plasters offer a non-toxic alternative for residential and commercial interior wall coverings.

Natural Beauty
American Clay creates surfaces reminiscent of classic interiors throughout history. Bring the natural warmth and sunshine of Provence into your kitchen...take a bath surrounded by the tranquil and earthy feel of a Japanese to a vibrant Tuscan Villa every time you enter your dining room. Whether you live along the California coast, in an urban London townhome, or on a sprawling Calgary ranch, the possibilities are endless with American Clay.

Natural Alternative
American Clay plasters are a natural way to finish any interior. Non-toxic and made in the U.S.A., our plasters are a healthy alternative to paint, wallpaper, cement, acrylic and gypsum plasters. American Clay offers eight plaster finishes, hundreds of colors, unlimited textures, and a depth not found in other finishes.

Create A Healthy Room
Clay plasters help regulate humid air inside buildings by absorbing and releasing moisture naturally — responding to changes in the interior space. Warm to the touch in winter and cool to the touch in summer, our plasters bring healthier comfort to interior spaces.
