WHITE STONE OBJECTS

White Thassos Marble:

a very strong, bright and sparkling natural rock, composed of fine crystals, snow-white in color

 

the purest white stone ever extracted; it comes from the island of Thassos, in the north of Greece

 

it has been used since ancient times in sculpture, decoration and the construction of monuments, public and residential buildings; applications nowadays also include floor tiles and furniture, mostly surfaces -like kitchen or table tops

The Material: Marble

these ‘abstract-white’ objects have been created in collaboration with local greek workshop.

 

they are hand-shaped in basic geometrical forms; regular but mostly imperfect, so as to emphasise the materiality of this unique crystal snow - white stone

 

part functional products (to be used as paperweight, doorstop, bookend, candle base, or as one wishes), part ornament (smooth to the touch and almost soothing to hold) they are foremost a shaped material
