The Hæmatite Cork Vessel
Pedro Da Costa Felgueiras
The Hæmatite Cork Vessel by Pedro da Costa Felgueiras is a unique bowl lined with 24 Carat Gold, painted with historical pigments. This beautiful piece is a collector's item, carefully handmade using Portuguese cork oak bark and traditional Japanese lacquer techniques to create a vessel which truly celebrates nature, tradition and innovation. The cork used can only be collected every seven to eight years, and it takes at least fifty years before it is suitable to be harvested. Wholly redefining the interior of the vessel, Pedro allows nature and imagination to exist harmoniously within this unique item.
