Flowstone’s journey from molten lava to architectural marvel is a brilliant collaboration of the Earth and Italian artistry. How does it happen? Volcanic rock hardened over eons is extracted by hand from open-air quarries surrounding Mount Etna, hand cut, hand glazed and, when placed in 1000°C kilns, undergoes a second metamorphosis. This alchemy of stone, enamel and fire produces characteristic variations in tone and pigment, occasional blooms of ore and fine crettatura (crackling) – “imperfections” that give every Flowstone installation its prized individual signature. A signature that subtly burnishes over time with a soft, warm patina. Discover rare beauty forged from one of the strongest and eternally renewed resources on the planet.
