More information about our vases

 
 
This simple stone vase is handcrafted out of a solid piece of slate.  Slate is a sedimentary stone and is estimated to be over 150 million years old.  Each piece is one of a kind, and will vary slightly in size, color and weight.

The color of the stone is natural and has been treated with a stone sealer.  It is recommended that you wipe the vase with a damp cloth from time to time to keep it looking its best.

This slate stone vase is designed for simple arrangements with few flowers.  You can create a unique arrangement almost effortlessly.

HOW TO USE OUR VASES: 

Fill vase from top with water.  Push stems of flowers onto metal pins and arrange as you like.

You may insert as many flowers as will fit onto the pins, if you wish.  However, a simple, elegant arrangement may consist of one flower, or three flowers cut at three different heights, adding some leaves or other foliage.

Water frequently, every few days for one flower, or every day for a larger arrangement, depending on the size of the bowl.  Remember that the flowers will last a bit longer in the slate vase than in a regular vase, as the pins are opening up the stems allowing them to easily absorb the water.

Besides fresh flowers, you may use budding branches, succulents, or even silk or dried flowers.

Slate Stone Vases are one-of-a-kind vases made from natural slate.  These vases are suitable for every room in your home or office, and make great gifts for all occasions!
