Giant Paros Cauldron
The sacred stone of Bali; Paros is a manufactured stone created and used by Balinese carvers. It is made of a mixture of pumice, lava and concrete. Artisans first cast the stone into blocks. While still somewhat wet, it is worked into the rough shape of the finished article. Once completely dry, the finished carving is completed.
Traditionally, Paros stone is the stone used to carve Balinese temples and sacred objects. The entire process, from cast to finish carving typically takes about two months.
Paros is lightweight, absorbs and hold water well, and ages quickly; developing a coating of lichen and moss that adds to it's appeal. For this reason, we've . chosen to have our carvers create a line of vessels designed to sit under rain chains to beautifully capture the flowing water.
This giant caldron can be used as a planter, water garden, fire pit, or as the receiving vessel of a rain chain. We're happy to help you turn this unique piece into the perfect show piece for you.
