Material & Manufacture process: Cast Alabaster 

Cast Alabaster board is made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek Alabaster stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a glue. Αlabaster was very widely used for small sculpture for indoor use in the ancient world, especially in Ancient Greece , Egypt and Mesopotamia . The mixture is then poured into a mold of the board design. Because the powder is so fine the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished board is natural crushed Greek Alabaster stone, which gives it a look and feel of solid natural marble. This strong material is water and weather resistant, doesn't have bubbles, will not crack, and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
