Glazing the stone

A distinctive feature of lava stone is the fact it can be glazed to achieve a wide range of colors and effects

Glazing offers countless possibilities to transform the lava stone surface.
Once molten lava, lava rock stone can withstand the very high temperatures used in the glazing process.
Lava stone tiles, countertops and tables can be coated with an enamel glaze, and fired at a very high temperature to reveal a bewildering palette of colors and a wide range of opportunities for interior design projects.

Technically, kiln firing increases the resistance of glazed stone surfaces – a key factor for indoor and outdoor applications, from outdoor tables and bar counters to kitchen countertops. Glazing makes stone surfaces highly resistant and almost indestructible when exposed to water, chemicals, temperature fluctuations or UV light.
