Story Behind the Art:
SMOLArt is a group of artists who live in the rural village of Tabaka, Kenya, the heart of soapstone crafts. The name, a shortened version of Small Medium and Large Artists, refers to the size of the products the artisans make, not their stature. Established in 1990, SMOLArt is a member of WFTO the World Fair Trade Association, and as such assures that the artisans are paid a fair price for their work. In addition the organization supports community development by contributing to projects that improve living conditions, education and health of their members and the village at large. Soapstone is mined from great pits in the area surrounding Kiisi Kenya. The mined stone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone the color of which ranges from cream to pink to brown to yellow to black to a marbling of all of them.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

The quality/craftsmanship is beautiful. It's just what I expected. There is a little nick/dent but I think that is in part because it's polished stone and the actually stone may have been a bit flawed.Read More
