The Scagliola Research Centre is currently using my workshop and property at Beaver Palace Studios In upstate NY as a base of operations. We are located at 306 Wilcox road, Oxford, NY, 13830.
Hi there. I am David Hayles, seen in the middle of the picture above. I have been making and restoring scagliola my whole life, and even co-founded a successful multi-national company based on this old secret trade. I am retired now, but want to keep this craft alive. That is why I have started the Scagliola Research Centre. We produce, research, and conserve various styles, types and patterns of scagliola in various mediums such as tables, columns, walls, trimming, etc.
