This listing is for the available vase(s) in the SMALL size with the GECKO motif etched into the stone.
Bring #MoreNature into your world.
The Slate Vase with its handcrafted shape, unique stone texture & colours, brings the tactile touch of nature within easy reach. The gecko design is engraved into the stone surface.
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.
As every vase is a one-off, please know it cannot be recreated.
(The photos with a black rectangle under the vase is to help visually indicate size. The black area is a standard A4 sized page measuring 297mm x 21mm / 11.75 x 8.25 inches)
From Noosa, Australia.

ETCHED DESIGN – GECKO:
The design is carved into the stone surface (via a handcrafted process - no computers or lasers), inked for increased definition and then sealed.
The GECKO design can be even fully appreciated when it is seen basking on the slate under a lovely flower arrangement...
These curious creatures are often considered to be a sign of good luck and a symbol of keeping one eye on the past while focusing the other on the future.
Geckos have been symbolically linked to ... conservation, agility, dreaming, renewal, transformation, ancient energy.
The gecko lizard has a thick stumpy tail which they can drop in defence during a fight, and later re-grow. This can be symbolic of the ability to "let go of" or detach from something that is no longer needed in order to move on, survive, and grow.
