Description

This red-veined grey marble offers a very interesting visual appeal, especially when hand-carved into a circular and flat plate that exhibits its rich colours. This plate can be used to serve snacks or simply as a decorative piece of its own. It is best accompanied by our smaller-sized plate of the same material.

Care instructions

Clean carefully with water and mild soap and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. Avoid exposure to vinegar, lemon juice or other materials containing acids.

Stone Artisan Story image 1
Artisan Story

Stone Masonry and Carving

We recently set up a stone workshop in Amman in which we run apprenticeship programmes to preserve traditional carving and masonry techniques. Our apprentices are originally from Homs, but they learnt the craft in Jordan.

In the Levant, stone is a dominant material in the landscape. In the beginning of the twentieth century, artisans travelled in the region to build stone houses and palaces and to decorate their facades. The best stone artisans were from Aleppo (Syria), As-Salt (Jordan) and Nablus (Palestine).

Due to conflict and displacement in recent years, stonemasons from Syria moved their business to Jordan, Egypt and Turkey. Those who moved to Jordan opened their own workshops and renewed their contacts with previous clients in the hope that their skills will be in demand.

Our workshop continues to hold apprenticeship programmes and develop products with artisans and designers.
