Terrazzo Vases - Vases & Vessels

Featured In London, United Kingdom

Item details

The history of terrazzo can be traced back to the early stages of the Neolithic period.
The form of terrazzo used today derives from the 18th century Venetian pavement and the cheaper Seminato. Terrazzo was created when resourceful Venetian mosaic workers discovered a way to reuse marble remnants.
Whilst terrazzo surfaces consist of durable materials such as marble, granite, concrete or metal aggregates mixed with cement or epoxy, the terrazzo vases explore the terrazzo production techniques with porcelain as an exciting new material.
The coloured chips are pre made using a marbling technique which are later integrated into the slip casting process to blend with the main body.
Each vase is handmade and only reveals colours and their unique patterns after being sanded down.
