I was captivated, mesmerized the first time I saw pure gold melted and poured into the ingot mould. Then I decided that I would only work with gold. That it would be my identity material.

As my desire to sculpt grew, I saw that gold was limiting me. And I decided to try alabaster, because I think that the vibration of its light is very similar to the vibration coming from 750/1000 gold. Also because, knowing and admiring the work of Eduardo Chillida, it seemed to me a magical material.

Alabaster, a water-soluble mineral that, like talc, can be scratched with a fingernail. 

The perfect mineral to make a work in which the light enters inside the material, its diffuse illumination makes its way into the carved space and creates a contrast with the solidity of the surrounding form: a play between interior and exterior space. 

That of alabaster is a milky light, apparently luminous but veiled, opaque. In Chillida's opinion, even a gloomy light. Something not too far from the dark and misty glow of the landscape of his homeland, the Basque Country.

I recognize that feeling myself. 



The origin of the word is to be found in the Far East and ancient Egypt: "alabastra" were pear-shaped vessels, without handles, in which perfumes were kept. Its name comes from the godess Bast; depicted as a lioness, she covered the vases made from the stone.

It appears in the Bible. An alabaster jar contained the fine oil in which the woman anointed Jesus' feet. And by storing alabaster stones, David built the temple of Jehovah in Jerusalem.


Alabaster has the power to drive away negative energies and attract positive ones.

It facilitates forgiveness and thus frees the being and purifies the soul. It helps to focus on the positive and gives moral strength to overcome family or social resentments.

It is connected to the seventh chakra, which is the center of spirituality and self-awareness, and helps to focus on oneself. Its liberating and relaxing effect helps to improve bone and muscle ailments.

Its frequency is high vibrational. It is widely used in meditation.


Alabaster is a mineral of powerful spiritual and healing energy.

In lithotherapy it helps with heart problems and the regeneration of new cells. Helps digestion and swallowing and relieves chronic pain.
