Earth Art and Architecture

Earth art or plaster accents are easy to incorporate into new cob or straw bale walls, but you don’t need to build a brand new house to enjoy them. Plus, if you install the accents yourself with local materials, earth art can be a very cost-effective way to add warmth and life to your home.

Earthen accents can make a dramatic statement, like this stately tree designed by Deanne Bednar.
