Originally from Carrara, Italy, Giuseppe Telara comes from a long line of marble workers. For a year now, he’s been working with AM3 Stone’s Alabama marble. We couldn’t think of a better person to ask about what makes Alabama Marble special. Here’s what he said.
For 13 years, the Sylacauga Marble Festival has showcased Alabama’s pure white marble at Blue Bell Park. During the festival, sculptors from around the country and world come together for 11 straight days of marble carving and fellowship. This year, the festival, sponsored by AM3 Stone, is back, and it’s taking place from April 6-April 17. We reached out to sculptor Craigger Browne and festival founder Ted Spears to learn more.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been seeing Alabama marble my whole life without realizing it. Architects, designers and artists from across the country love incorporating this beautiful, strong, white marble from Sylacauga’s AM3 Stone into their work. We talked to two local architects to find out why.
