Abalone Slate Vase
The Abalone is ideal for use as a vase or simply as a standalone presentation piece in any room in the home.
Clean and simple lines make this a contemporary and sculptural work of art.
The natural properties of the slate are revealed at their finest with the honed and smooth finish.
Each individual planter will display its own natural finish with hues of greys, copper and silver and are pre-drilled for external use to ensure that your plants are never over watered.
All of our planters are easy to clean and maintain and are frost and weather resistant.
Please Note: Natural slate is a product of nature and as such no two are the same. There will be variations in colour, pattern, texture and veining. These differences are part of the beauty of slate.
Received a slate vase as a gift last year it is beautiful and so tactile. After many hints and threats of theft! we have since bought 2 other vases as gifts for other people and now a bird bath for ourselves. Needless to say we love these products. The delivery of the bird bath needed a little coordination, due to time restraints and our location but Gemma could not have done more to help. Extremely happy and definitely hope to buy more.
Slate is a metamorphic rock with a fine grain, it has the unique ability to be split accurately into straight slabs and plates.
The split sheets each display unique texture and colouration, though always with a predominantly grey base.
Slate varies in colour depending on where it is mined as the individual composition of the rock varies between localities.
Slate is particularly suitable for use as a planter or vase as it has an extremely low water absorption index, meaning that it is resistant to frost damage.
It is incredibly durable and will last for hundreds of years, a Foras slate planter is a planter for life.
The Abalone Slate Vase is suitable for internal use however if you plan to place it outside you must add drainage holes to the bottom of the vase to allow water to escape and not collect inside the vessel.
Due to dimensions of the product, our premium luxury gift wrap service is only available on 20cm and 25cm Abalone vases.
