ALABASTER

Introducing this stone into the contemporary design world is how we convey its infinite, intimate qualities. This unique stone has a rich history. Early on, it served as windows or stained glass, later being carved into sculptures or decorative objects. Whatever the era, alabaster evokes serenity.

NATURALLY TRANSLUCENT

A specific and rare crystallization of gypsum creates the unique texture and translucent appearance of alabaster. Preserved underground, the stone emerges lackluster, inviting sculptors to reveal its secrets and splendors, variations and transparencies.

A RIGOROUS SELECTION

White translucent alabaster in the dimensions we require for our creations is rare. Moreover, it offers myriad patterns – fluid or crystallised, white or ochre – and many degrees of transparency. It is thanks to our high standards and expertise that we are able compose harmonious sets.

ALABASTER RICHNESS AND ET SUPPLENESS

Alabaster is amazingly tender, making it easy to shape and sculpt.

Sounds easy to work, right? In reality, that same characteristic makes it easy to break or scratch.

Our trademark Stonelight protection treatments bridge richness and constraint.

Creativity is unleashed!

THE STONE MAGNIFIED BY THE BACKLIGHT

Light that passes through the material’s mass reveals its pattern’s density: cloudy, fluid or crystallised. We work on the light source’s uniformity and richness to bring the patterns to life.

They become immediately visible and are absolutely captivating.
