What is Parian II?
Parian marble was a fine-grained semitranslucent pure-white marble quarried during the classical era on the Greek island of Paros. It was highly prized by the ancient Greeks for making sculptures. Parianware, was created in 1851 as a method of casting sculpture to look like sculpted marble but at more affordable prices. It was rather chalky, fragile and easily damaged..

Parian II is a new, high technology material that is less expensive than bronze or hand carved marble yet allows a classical interpretation of an original sculpture. Parian II creates a warm smooth sculpture that looks; feels and is as durable as marble.

Steve chose Parian II because of the pure white finish. It highlights the shapes and curves of his work, creating shadows in places otherwise unobserved in his forms.  He particulary likes the matt finish, giving it a more modern feel to his elegant, flowing, sculpture.
