Carrara Marble

0.36 x 0.30 x 0.15 m

Marble is a metamorphic rock formed when limestone is subjected to heat and pressure.


Sixty five million years ago, when the  African tectonic plate crashed into the Eurasian plate and formed the European Alps, limestone in the Carrara area was heated, folded and melted; as it cooled it formed into crystalline white marble.


Carrara marble is particularly pure with very uniform small white crystals. This results in strength and workability which make it such a prized sculptural medium. Carrara Marble is the archetypal sculptural stone. Michelangelo’s David is carved from Carrara Marble.

It is a privilege to work with this classic material.
