Made of especially fine sheet metal, Laos pots are hand-hammered into a slightly organic, amorphous form. The delicate and light material is deliberately chosen to give the vase the desired elegance and lightness. Due to the shiny nickel-plating on its exterior surfaces, Laos should not be placed outdoors. Before adorning Laos with flowers or plants, a plastic liner should always be used. Otherwise scale and mineral deposits in the water will damage the precious surface and lead to corrosion.
