Chysallis vases is inspired by the life cycle of Lepidoptera, from the chrysalis (Chrysallis) to the butterfly (Papilio).

The Chrysallis vase represents the phase in which the external casing of the chrysalis is formed and is composed of 2 parts in handcrafted stone and a part in glass painted and worked with a particular technique that makes it appear as if it is fractured, simulating a shape in the making. This handmade indent may differ slightly from how it appears in the photograph.

The stone, a testament to our commitment to sustainability, is meticulously handcrafted from fragments of natural Italian rocks sourced from Tuscany and Veneto. This innovative material, inspired by ancient Roman techniques, is truly one-of-a-kind as it does not contain glue or cement. It is dried naturally in the open air, under the sun, to ensure ever greater environmental sustainability.

The surface of the handcrafted stone piece is treated with an ecological substance developed by COKI.

The glass and stone components are not glued and can be separate, disassembled, and ready for new uses.

The stone's color becomes brighter and clearer within 2-3 months due to the natural absorption process of the surface treatment, which is based on ancient techniques of the artisan tradition.
