The design inspiration comes from the "Cochleae" (snails), and the vase features bodies and shells made of two different materials that are not joined together, making it the epitome of unique design, capturing the growth of these invertebrate, with the curved glass representing the invertebrate's body and the semicircular stone components symbolizing the embracing shell.

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.

GLASS CLEANING AND CARE

 Clean the bottom inside of the vase simply filling it with wine vinegar and letting it sit for a whole day. Then pour the vinegar into a closed glass or plastic bottle and save it for the next use (do not throw the vinegar in the toilet or sink, it damages aquatic organisms). Rinse the jar with water and dry with a soft cloth.
