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.

  • way too small
    Verified Purchase

    To accomodate a glass or can, no backing to it either, so it slips around. Pretty pricey too....they're just not functionally practical.

    Verified Purchase

    These coasters are beyond beautiful. Not only are the animals hand painted onto them, they are also etched in. I would highly recommend these coasters to anyone. Please note the smaller size, they are only about 3" in diameter, but perfect for my use. The coasters are extremely well made and will last me forever. I just love them, and am so happy with my purchase.

    These are such pretty little coasters, and they add a nice touch to our African themed room. The deep red is really nice, and I like the artwork. They are quite small, however, so note the diameter. Also, being handmade, they are not exactly uniform in size, which kind of dictates the order that they will stack in the holder. In my set, the only one that will fit on top is of a kangaroo. Not sure why a kangaroo is thrown in there since I thought they were only in Australia! Maybe I am wrong. But I would much rather display the giraffe!
