My vases are not glass or ceramic. They are constructed from natural stone, bonded with fortified masonry. Each vase has one especially decorative face showing exposed aggregates or semi precious minerals and gems. The other three sides are solid rock.

I saw, split and break the stone to achieve the desired shape of the vase, leaving attractive, natural looking broken edges. Every vase has my initials etched into the stone. Each has a glass core to ensure that it is completely watertight and will not seep any moisture. Cork pads are added to the base to protect furniture.

This particular vase is in a delicatly subtle slate. I added a seam of crude but genuine emeralds. It stands 14ins tall at it's highest point and weighs 15lbs.

My Current artwork is a unique style of handcrafted vase made from slate and gemstones such as emeralds and amethyst crystals. As well as finished vases my website offers training and licenses to people interested in learning the process. There is also a section relating to using slate in aquarium decor.
