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.

    I agree with other reviews that the coasters are smaller than normal size coasters, however, the detail and design is very attractive. The blue is very pretty. If they were normal size instead of a bit small, they would be perfect; however, I'm still satisfied with my purchase.

    As some of the other reviews said, these are a lot smaller than a standard-size coaster. Also, I guess due to their hand-crafted nature, some of them are a little uneven and don't have a completely flat surface. All that said, they work well enough for smaller glasses and they're very vibrant and classy looking. They're OK as an actual coaster, but fantastic as a decoration piece.

    Nicely crafted but too small for glass or cup placement. Not a coaster size at all.

    Beautiful set. Was looking to spend less on something really just practical, and decided on these. Have gotten many compliments and they are a great addition to our decor.

  • Smaller than I thought
    Verified Purchase

    I bought these as a gift for my sister and she loved them, but I was disappointed. They were a christmas gift so I didn't really have time to exchange them for something else. I like the product I received, but I wish the picture was more accurate because I felt deceived. In the picture, the coasters are blue, black, and white. The coasters I received were all blue with no black and white. Just the outlines of the animals were carved onto them but they weren't painted. They were also a little small for coasters.
