    "Statuary marble of the finest quality is translucent. Light strikes through the surface, rather than merely resting on it. This is especially evident in the two kinds of marble that Atchugarry uses most often - Carrara, and Portugal rose. By cutting marble into thin planes and folds, he allows the light that surrounds the forms to penetrate the shapes in a magical way. They seem to glow from within"

    Edward Lucie-Smith, in Pablo Athcugarry: The Spirit of Marble, Albemarle Gallery, 2010
