Alabaster in Antiquity February 18 2019, 0 Comments

Alabaster Antiques

While researching alabaster, I found beautiful ancient vessels and statues from the Middle East made from the stone.  My favorite pieces I found are the Ancient Egyptian jars that were used for mummification and were buried with a person after their death. It's amazing how they created such beautiful objects to be taken with them to their next life.

Alabaster

Alabaster is a new material that we are working for our new collection.  A beautiful mineral that has many uses.  The rock usually is clear and translucent making the light go through it and the softness of the stone allows for many functions.  Alabaster, the word, originated from Ancient Egypt which is a reference to the vessel of the Egyptian goddess Bast.  It was used historically by many cultures for decorative purposes especially in making sculptures.  We are very excited about using it in our new Cups, that will be launched in the Spring.
