This collection is made in the UK in cast Carrara marble. The beautiful white marble of Carrara in Tuscany was used for the Pantheon in ancient Rome and was a favourite of Michelangelo.
The sculptures are created using a process of dry casting, so that each sculpture contains over 90% marble. They glisten!
The high quality is such that there will be no discoloration - other than natural patination and ageing - especially if the pieces are placed outdoors.
