Co-owner, Artesano Traditional Plaster
Ryan has been working as a natural builder since 1998. He has played a key role in developing earth and lime plaster systems for natural buildings using standardized materials, locally available on the Colorado front range.
He is endlessly interested in traditional, natural building techniques from around the world, and is passionate that those traditions continue to be passed on. As part of that fascination Ryan traveled to Marrakech, Morocco to learn tadelakt from traditional artisans.
Ryan is a hopeless materials geek, and formulates all of his mixes from scratch, continuing to research and learn about chemistry and formulation of plasters and natural building systems. Ryan is co owner of artesano traditional plaster in Boulder.
