Alabaster carving

Alabaster carving

Alabaster is a singular variety of gypsum, finely crystallized, with light colors, which appears in compact and homogeneous masses called nodules. There are alabaster mines in different parts of Europe and this craft has usually been developed around it.

Alabaster must be extracted from the mine, transported and cut according to the type of use to which it is destined. Without separating it from the world of art, which in other times was directly linked, today, alabaster has many applications, both in architecture, as in lighting and ornamentation.

The technique of sculpting consists of extracting, by means of a hammer and chisel, punch or chisel, the excess material to give shape to the figure that has previously been drawn. Drilling, sawing, polishing machines, etc., can also be used.

Imagination sculpted from stone

Imagination sculpted from stone

Sculptor Diego Cano, born in the Almerian village of Olula del Río, was awarded the Master Artisan Card from the Andalusian Government in 2013. In the beginning of his arts career he dedicated to painting. He did it until 1985, when, by chance, he met Anglo-Russian sculptor Alexander Sokolov. He arrived in Macael and became Diego’s master. Since then, Diego hasn’t stop sculpting, unveiling the identity of the stone with his chisel. At first, he sculpted human figures, but then he became interested in surrealism. His works, inspired in everyday issues such as dialogue or friendship, have been exhibited all over Spain.
