9781873394830: Plastering

Sawyer's seminal work was first published in 1951. It offers straightforward practical instruction on the tried and tested methods of plastering as it was practised in the traditional way before the Second World War. It includes very useful drawings of the different features, including the tools, running moulds and geometry for setting out. The chapter describing running mouldings in situ will be of particular interest to the conservation practitioner since this method is now rarely used, but is considered the correct way to repair historic plasterwork. Jeff Orton and Tim Ratcliffe have provided a valuable Introduction to the book which not only gives an interesting background to the author but also comments on the materials or methods which are no longer considered appropriate.

About the Author:

J.T. Sawyer (1908-2001) left school aged fourteen and was apprenticed as a plasterer to his father, W. H. Sawyer C.R.P. (1873-1959), who had been apprenticed to his father, R. W. Sawyer (1830-1892).In 1945 he took a post at The East Ham School of Building, where he stayed for 28 years. At the school, boys from the age of 13 received a general education in addition to practical skills. The first edition of Plastering was intended to provide the basic technology for students. The author drew all the diagrams that accompanied the text.

Review:

Whilst not as comprehensive as the William Millar's magisterial Plastering Plain and Decorative, published 50 years earlier (and also reprinted by Donhead), Sawyer's Plastering is perhaps more accessible to the modern reader who seeks a plain no-nonsense guide, to set them on the path to develop their craft knowledge and skills to a level that was once commonplace amongst Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian plasterers. Having attained this level, a reader aspiring to become a master craftsman might then progress to Millar as part of a programme of essential further reading. Journal of Architectural Conservation For the novice and intermediate plasterer, Plastering serves as a pivotal introduction to the trade. For the restoration architect and the architectural historian [it] provides innumerable insights into the correct approach to understanding the possibilities that traditional plastering methods can provide and the means to accomplish a high-quality outcome... This book provides excellent foundational knowledge and valuable insights into the trade. APT Bulletin As a Lecturer who teaches the modern and traditional plastering skills, I am pleased that the publisher has re-printed the missing link. This work is of great importance to plasterers of the modern school and of students of plaster restoration and conservation. This book cannot be classed as an historical piece of work, but as a present day work manual on the traditional methods of plastering, and will give the student of plaster restoration and conservation a major source of reference when working on either plain or moulded plasterwork. I have no reservations on recommending this book to construction professionals and craftpersons of heritage plasterwork.
