Made from a single piece of natural stone, Melissa tumbler has a dozen of uses, both inside and outside the bathroom. Featuring a square profile and circular void, the contrast of shapes form highlights the clever and extra chic design. Put your brushes, your pens, your cutlery or just leave it free with no extra anything in it to decorate your beloved spaces.
The Melissa tumbler is handcrafted in pure volakas marble in the north of Greece famous for its marble quarries and pays homage to ancient Greek civilization, especially to the Acropolis and Parthenon. Volakas marble is a metamorphic rock that morphs from limestone under extreme heat and pressure deep within the earth. It also contains dolomite along with the limestone which gives them different colors and tones.
The traditions of marble carving and sculpture that goes back thousands of years to the famous Greek sculptors Phydias and Praxitelis are still alive today. Melissa tumbler is carved by hand and conveys a feeling of modernity while representing the luxuriousness of the material formed by nature and enhanced by human interpretation. It features a matte polish finish and is signed by the maker and designer. Since the designer does not like to paint the surface of the marble stone with transparent paints or resins, three coats of the highest possible level of protective sealant are applied instead. This will preserve both the piece and the natural feel of the marble.
