Stunning Portuguese alabaster lends its natural beauty to our Santo Collection. Each unique piece is sculpted entirely by hand from a single block of solid alabaster, then finished with a lustrous polish to accentuate its beautiful veining and subtle coloring. Translucency enables these cylindrical votive holders and hurricanes to create a warm, glowing environment when illuminated from within, whether singly or as an inviting candlescape. Round, straight-sided trays are carved with a slightly footed base for stacking, and sized for use atop a dresser or to serve dry foods in style. A set of low, footed bowls can be used in the kitchen as condiment dishes or snack containers, in the office to hold desk accessories such as paper clips, stamps or coins, or in the bath as elegant tealight holders. Cheese tools feature stainless steel heads and rounded alabaster handles.
