The use of alabaster in Egypt dates back to the Pharaonic period of Egyptian history. It is found a few miles behind the Valley of the Kings Luxor, in bulky and irregular shapes and sizes within the mountains. Each alabaster vessel is sanded down and hand carved into beautiful bowls and vessels by an Egyptian artisan, who completes this process over several days of incredibly skilled work.
The alabaster vessels look amazing when used as a tea light or candle holder. Glowing gorgeously through the alabaster, creating a stunning and unique ambience to your indoor and outdoor spaces.
Handcarved alabaster is translucent when held into the light. Keep in mind each piece has its own unique color and characteristics, different from the rest. Do not get the alabaster soaking wet or submerged in water, please use a simple wet wipe when cleaning.
