Each piece of raw SLATE is carefully handpicked for its quality and durability. Then undergoes a rigorous process of being hammered, shaped and drilled. – The result is a sturdy artisan piece, crafted with love and care.
Each vase is unique. This listing is for the available vase(s) in the SMALL size with the FERN engraving.
As every vase is a one-off, please know it cannot be recreated.

ETCHED DESIGN – BUTTERFLY
The design is carved into the stone surface (via a handcrafted process - no computers or lasers), inked for increased definition and then sealed.
The image of a BUTTERFLY is often used as a metaphor representing spiritual rebirth, transformation, change, hope and life. They have a short life which could represent the fragility of life; yet more commonly are associated with their journey and magnificent metamorphosis - from a caterpillar, to emerge from a cocoon and take flight with their glorious wings.
