Each piece is unique... Here is another Vase that got away! SOLD SOLD SOLD
This is another SOLD small vase with the addition of a design/motif ETCHED into the stone surface... This vase has a GUM NUT etching.
Each such vases has been purchased through this website and is being used in homes & workplaces (schools, hospitals, restaurants, cafes, hairdressers, you name it!) throughout Australia and beyond.
As you can see each piece is unique in handcrafted shape, stone texture & colour.
Each piece of raw slate is carefully handpicked for its quality and durability, 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 NUT:
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 both came about after requests for an Australian motif in the range of engravings.
The GUM LEAF and NUT come 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.
