the rezak alabaster collection


Egyptian Stone Master, Mamdouh Abdel Rezak, has been mastering the ancient stone of Alabaster since the age of fourteen. Beginning his career as a finisher, he advanced from the lowest levels of the trade to a master, spinning and shaping beautiful stone objects with his individual artistry. Today, as a Chief Artisan, he takes pride in passing along his impressive knowledge and experience to the younger craftsmen. 

All Alabaster pieces in the collection are sourced from Upper Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula and crafted in Cairo. The mastering of Alabaster has existed since ancient Pharaonic times. The artisans of Pharaonic Egypt fashioned lighting fixtures, and royal containers for perfume and essential oils from the ancient stone.
