Extracted from the Nugere crater of the Volvic Park of Volcanoes, situated in the south of France, lava is a 100% natural material for your projects. Starting from massive blocks that are primarily hand-quarried, it is then cut and custom shaped into slabs, bricks or complex pieces. This natural stone, with its characteristic warm shades of gray, comes in 8 different surface finishes and a waterproof option. Ultimately, natural lava stone may be enhanced through enameling.
Exclusive signature of Pyrolave is the enameling of lava, a process involving over 10 individual stages, including the firing of the pieces in the kilns at 1000⁰C for more than 12 hours. Brute lava is thus transformed, the surfaces are covered by a compact layer of rich color, with the characteristic fine “craquelle” on the surface revealing unique reflections. Color possibilities are unlimited and beyond our core collection of 24 colors, in matte or shiny finish, Pyrolave offers the possibility of color research in order to create your own, personalized color.
