Ceiling bulging following plastering?

I have just had artex living room ceiling plastered over. Since then have noticed a huge bulge in part of the ceiling and one or two smaller bulges. My family have owned this house for 40+ years and have never noticed these until now. Plasterer says not to worry it is the joists above bowing and that it is indeed the shape of the ceiling. I'm really not convinced but would appreciate any input or advice thanks.

Hi did you notice a bulge before it was plastered? If not the plasterer may not of pva the ceiling properly before it was skimmed,as it will peel off.

It sounds like the Artex Underneath the plaster is blown And this could lead to the bulge dropping down on u

Hi, this could be caused by the plaster not adhering to the pva or the weight of the plaster effecting the original artex.

Does it sound “hollow” if you lightly tap the bulging areas?
