Amarist Studio has been immersed in investigating the geological formation of the Alabaster Stone, its use throughout history and the process of extracting the mineral in the quarries near their studio.
The result is a new collection that transports the viewer to a landscape of unknown nature, where each artwork seems to reveal the main element of the molecular composition of Alabaster Stone; Water.
In this way, Amarist Studio’s new Aqua Fossil describe fluid organic compositions presenting Alabaster Stone as a liquid element.
The result of this work presents a trip to the roots of the geological formation of the Iberian Alabaster, a stone of sedimentary and metamorphic origin, which after the evaporation of a sea millions of years ago, led to the formation of this characteristic white stone with translucent properties. Now, the area occupied by this old sea is a desert in the ‘Ribera del Ebro’ area, where deposits of this mineral can be found. Small rocks that are extracted one by one, as if they were buried treasures under an old seabed.
