Our Unique Process: Each vase begins as a weathered stone with various veins of color. The stone is then cut into blocks to meet specified dimensions. Each vase is hand carved on a lathe and the center is cored. Once carved, the vase is polished and glazed with an acrylic to enhance the shine, then heated to set the acrylic and enhance the stone's natural color. These 7 color jade vases contain a beautiful combination of veins including Serpentine jade and Actinolites. Each of these vases are truly one of a kind.
