Beautiful carvings of animals, boxes, angels, mothers and small dishes, all made in soapstone.
Most are coloured and decorated, and some are left in the simple, but beautiful, natural colourway. The coloured boxes are coloured and then carved, so that the natural colour of the soapstone shows through.
Kisii soapstone hand crafted
All of these pieces are hand made in Kisii, of the local soapstone.
Others have been brightly coloured and decorated with individual patterns, making each one truly unique. Often, the soapstone is coloured, and then carved, leaving the natural colour of the soapstone showing through as the design.
Some of them are left in the natural colour of the stone, which is a soft pinkish cream colour.
From animals to dishes, boxes to ornaments this is just a small selection of what these talented artisans are able to do.
