This unique stoneware, exquisitely hand-crafted from single pieces of metamorphic onyx, is from Balochistan Province in Western Pakistan. Skilled artisans turn solid stone blocks on lathes to create beautiful bowls, plates and other stoneware to support their family and community. Use it to store jewellery and accessories, display candles and flowers or hold treats on a coffee table. Green onyx is a form of agate and forms mostly in cavities of eruptive rock or lava. The banded structure, with successive layers, displays a variety of colours. The beautiful polished surface of natural stoneware will stay shiny if used to serve dry items like crackers or popcorn though acid in foods such as salads, vegetables and soups will dull the surfaces they come in contact with over time. Also, metal utensils will scratch the surface. We recommend cleaning with a damp cloth. No microwave ovens, dishwashers, or chemical detergents please!
This exotic bronze box is functional and beautiful. It has a black velvet lined interior, hinged lid and a brass latch. The box’s spectacular lid has been skillfully embossed with a Lotus and Om symbol. Om Mani Padme Hum, written in Tibetan script, can be found on each side of the box.
OM means oneness with the Supreme, the merging of the physical and the spiritual body, it is the symbol of Hindouism. Considered as the most powerful mantra it transcends time.
