Djenné’s mud houses as an inspiration for Tierrafino clay paint and clay plaster.

By clay artist Carl Giskes

“In the 1970s I traveled through Africa, Asia and America for seven years to get to know other cultures and to orientate myself on my future.
In Africa I ended up in the famous city of Djenné, which made an indelible impression on me. I saw how the people built their houses with clay. These houses are a pleasure to live and work in.
When I returned from my world trip, I decided to introduce clay building here in the Netherlands. In 1992 I founded ‘Leembouw Nederland’, a company that made mineral, environmentally friendly stuccos, paints and other clay products with the brand name Tierrafino (Fine Earth).
