Description

The Galeana Collection by Jorge Diego Etienne is made up of six objects sculpted in alabaster that speak of origin, craft processes, and materiality. It is done in collaboration with the Master Francisco Charles from Galeana, Nuevo León in Northern Mexico. The town sits 1,639m above sea level and has one of the best deposits of this variety of calcium sulfate in the world, characterized by its pure white color.

The project combines artisanal manual labor with experimentation in advanced manufacturing. Using pencil, chisel, sandpaper, and wedges, the craftsman solves proposed digital modelling and 3D prints, demonstrating his mastery over a polished technique for over five decades. Each of these stones was carefully extracted from the fields, giving them a unique and unrepeatable identity. The same hands that break the earth with the blows of a mallet, cut, define, and smooth the piece, denoting the skill and sensitivity of the craftsman to work it.

With Galeana, common objects in our daily lives are re-contextualized as functional sculptures, deconstructed to generate a language of rational forms interposed in a calculated irrational order. The detail and precision speak of the patience in each stroke of the Master who, through this collaboration, seeks to share his knowledge to motivate others to keep working with alabaster stone in Galeana.
