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.

What is Worldstock?

  • Nice hostess gift

    I gave two of these little bowls as gifts, and the recipients really liked them. They are quite small inside, as the walls are thick, but the bright colors and incised design are attractive, and the little elephant handle on the lid is charming. The soapstone spoon is a nice touch, not hugely practical however.

  • Neat little sugar bowl
    Verified Purchase

    Interesting little sugar bowl but I received the wrong color. I wanted the blue but received the red. I would have sent it back but I was satisfied with the red color. I have ordered many things through Overstock and this is the first time I received the wrong order.
