EL GRANADA, CA
Alabaster stone is a crystalline form of gypsum whose colors and veins are derived from iron, copper and other minerals. My alabaster is quarried from the ancient sea beds found in Utah, Colorado, California and Italy. Using woods from around the world I inlay segmented designs which add warmth and depth to each piece. Stone and wood are fused together and carved on a lathe to 3/16th of an inch thickness and are often translucent.
