The use of alabaster in Egypt dates back to the Pharaonic period of Egyptian history. It is found within the mountains a few miles behind the Valley of the Kings. Each alabaster vessel is sanded down by an Egyptian artisan, and hand-carved into beautiful bowls and vessels. This process takes several days of incredibly skilled work.
Hand-carved alabaster is translucent when held into the light. Keep in mind each piece has its own unique colour and characteristics. Do not get the alabaster soaking wet or submerged in water, please use a simple wet wipe when cleaning.
