Story Behind the Art
SMOLArt is a group of artists who live in the rural village of Tabaka, Kenya. 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 with a marbling in each of them. Once carved, the craftspeople smooth rough edges with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the piece to a high gloss or paint African motifs in brilliant colors with etched accents. All of the products are completely handmade. The tools consist of household items, such as screwdrivers, hand drills and switchblades.

  • Fetching sugar bowl.

    This is a rather nice little accent piece. High quality and unique. The color is eye-catching, all-in all, I rate it at a 10.

  • Quality Control Lacking

    If the finish and fit had been good and if there had been no disgusting odor inside bowl (smelled almost caustic, burned my eyes), this would have been such a cute little sugar bowl and I would have given it a 5 star rating. Loved the color, but there were streaks and unfinished areas and discolorations. The lid did not fit right, almost like it was from another bowl. But the worst aspect was the hideous odor inside the bowl. I understand that this was an individually crafted item, but the imperfections were way beyond quaint - they were unacceptable. I called Overstock and was immediately taken care of in a friendly and professional manner. Overstock sent me a free return label and they sent out a replacement sugar bowl right away. Very impressive customer service, 5 star quality, which is why I will continue to be an Overstock customer!

  • Soapstone sugar bowl and spoon

    I bought this as a gift for friends. It matched their kitchen perfectly. They spent their honeymoon in Kenya, and have many accents in their home that were made there. This was the perfect addition to their kitchen, as well as a reminder of their special time together. Beautiful piece.

  • Perfectly eclectic and fun for my kitchen

    I like eclectic accents for my kitchen. Many sugar bowls are boring, but this is understated and fun. I like that it comes with its own spoon.
