About the Author:

Adam Weismann and Katy Bryce work with lime and clay on a daily basis through their company, Clayworks. They learnt these skills through restoring ancient vernacular buildings in Cornwall, UK, and then began to apply the traditional techniques and materials to contemporary eco-builds. They have a passionate belief in the power of using these natural materials to benefit the health and well being of people, buildings and the environment.

Review:

"This highly informative and sumptuous book shows how the threat of climate change is also an opportunity to make buildings more beautiful." -- Sunand Prasad, President, Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) "Adam and Katy are rethinking how we build, and coming up with something beautiful." -- John Vidal, Environment Editor, The Guardian "A splendid book. A real addition to what's out there and very complementary to the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings' new technical manual on Old Building Repairs." -- Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs
