This one of a kind 'Woodicrafts' vase is made from locally-sourced mastic wood with a copper powder inlay. Each piece is handmade in the designer’s own studio on the Greek island of Chios and hollowed with specific woodturning tools. This striking piece is a great addition to any interior as a stand alone statement piece or used with your own arrangement of fresh flowers. The thickness of the vase is consistent from the rim to the bottom to ensure regularity and avoid cracking.
About the wood: Mastic tree or sxinos is a dioecious evergreen shrub or small tree of the pistacio genus growing up to 4 m (13 ft) tall which is cultivated for its aromatic resin, on the Greek island of Chios. Sxinos wood is of great quality, with its heartwood being particularly hard compared to its sapwood and ideal for small turning projects, like worry beads. Another characteristic that makes sxinos wood special and unique is the frequency of imperfections and knots on its bark.
The Sxinos vase is 11cm high by 8cm wide (diameter).
