The Slate Vase creates a unique, natural stone product, handmade by Mary in Noosa, Queensland. The Slate Vase is based on a Japanese vase concept (utilizing an ‘Ikebana’ style shallow water reservoir and ‘Kenzan’ spikes) to enable beautiful, natural floral arrangements, with both a longer lifespan and lower maintenance.
Creating such an easy and functional way to display nature’s beauty is a driving passion in Mary’s work. Each piece of raw stone is carefully handpicked for quality and strength and taken through a rigorous shaping and crafting process. The result is one-of-a-kind vases that offer ‘nature displaying nature’.
