EACH PIECE IS UNIQUE... HERE IS ANOTHER VASE THAT GOT AWAY! SOLD SOLD SOLD
This listing shows a SOLD vase in the LARGE size with the GUM LEAF motif etched into the slate stone.
These vases have been purchased through this website and are being used in homes & workplaces (receptions, schools, hospitals, restaurants, cafes, hairdressers, you name it!) throughout Australia and beyond.
Each one has a handcrafted shape and unique stone texture & colour.
Individual sections of raw slate are carefully handpicked for quality and durability and then put through a rigorous process of being hammered, shaped and drilled. The result is a sturdy artisan piece with expected use for many years to come.
As every vase is a one-off, please know it cannot be recreated.

ENGRAVED DESIGN – GUM LEAF:
The design is carved into the stone surface (via a handcrafted process - no computers or lasers), inked for increased definition and then sealed.
The GUM LEAF and the GUM NUT designs came about after requests for an Australian motif in the range of engravings.
The GUM LEAF comes from the Eucalyptus tree native to Australia. It has been noted as a symbol of strength, protection, and survival as well as leadership, focus, healing, goals, clarity, rejuvenation and connection. It is also considered of great benefit for its medicinal eucalyptus properties. It is also a personal favourite in our beautiful landscape.
Note: only ONE large vase with this design is currently available.
