This small earthen plastered niche finished with gold kaolin clay plaster, serves as a perfect place to showcase some one-of-a-kind micaceous clay pots in the living room of our straw bale hybrid home. The plaster was tinted with gold iron oxide pigment, with finely chopped straw and a dusting of mica added to give it some shimmer. The shelf of this niche was created by placing a thin piece of flagstone for an elegant organic edge, contrasting the high end finish of the plaster work.
