A volcano is an opening, or rupture, in a planet’s surface or crust, which allows hot magma, volcanic ash and gases to escape from the magma chamber below the surface.
If you have never read the history of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 – we highly recommend adding it to your history repertoire. It vividly reiterates how powerful nature truly can be. An estimated 16,000 people were killed and buried beneath the pyroclastic flow.
(Be sure to look for a few archeological pictures.)
Volcanoes are generally found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging.
(A number of volcanoes are actually deep in the ocean–The Hawaiian Islands are basically hardened volcanic magma that were birthed from deep within the ocean.)
The volcano’s lava is the focus in today’s article.
Lava refers both to molten rock expelled by a volcano during an eruption and the resulting rock after solidification and cooling.
The designer we would like to feature is Monique Lhuillier.
Her FW2012 collection was a goody-bag of treats for us.
We immediately correlated the designs to lava.
Do you agree?
This was a beautiful collection from a beautiful designer.
