Original slate from Val Fontanabuona, Liguria, Italy

Only natural materials were used to carve this vase, free of lead and solvents.

Each vase carries a natural print of the stone piece it is made of. This natural motif makes each of them unique and unrepeatable.

Finish “a spacco” (by splits): a raw stone surface with small irregularities (some differences among pieces in shape, surface or colour may occur due to manual processing and properties of the natural material used, and these are not contestable).



W 37 x H 37 cm th. 8

The dimensions are given as estimated because each piece is entirely handcrafted and unique, so small differences that result from traditional craftsmanship techniques are not contestable.
