Dolomyth Vase is derived from blocks of local stone recovered in an abandoned quarry of Dolomite Mountains.In the vertical section planes are clearly visible the different layers of geological sedimentation, with shades ranging from antique pink to grey, typical of dolomite rocks. On the base the extraclear resin, resembling the water in which these stones lay submerged through various geological eras, preserves the rough and wrinkled natural surface of the rock, creating the effect of suspending the stone in the void and giving it an unusual lightness. At the top, there is a small removable glass container in which to place little plants and flowers with water.

Concept

For the Dolomyth Collection, aiming to capture the complex mountainous relief of the Dolomites, alcarol retrieved blocks of local stone from an abandoned quarry and from Karst is a distinctive landscape. Both kind of stone are partially covered with native mosses and lichens, giving it a surface that captures the geographical maps of the Dolomite’s mountains.

The collection is focused on the results of the geological processes that involved these rocks, giving them their peculiarity. The top surface of the blocks is the rough and wrinkled natural surface of the rock, unsanded and not worked by man.

alcarol has preserved this “skin” marked by time using a resin resembling the water in which these stones lay submerged through various geological eras, freezing the present instant and endowing the blocks with new functionality and new design.
