Rainbow Soapstone Heart Bowl
Hand-carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone by Kenya artisans, soapstone heart bowls make a great trinket dish to brighten up your nightstand, dresser, coffee table or office desk!
Soapstone is mined from great pits in the area surrounding Kiisi, Kenya. The mined soapstone ranges in colors from cream, pink, brown, yellow, black and marble. Once mined the soapstone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures in this natural stone. Once carved, the craftspeople smooth rough edges of the soapstone with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the piece to a high gloss or paint African motifs in brilliant colors with etched accents.
Size: Measures approximately 5-inches.
