African soapstone is a treasured mineral, prized for its carving capabilities and admired for the smooth finish it can achieve after polishing. This material is composed of talc and is primarily found in East Africa, boasting an impressively dense yet soft texture.
Our soapstone is sourced from the beautiful Kisii region of Kenya, renowned for its vast reserves of soapstone. The natural stone is quarried and carefully sculpted into remarkable decorative pieces; think figurines, bowls and candle holders that are both stylish and useful!
For generations, the skilled artisans of Kisii have been producing soapstone carvings characterized by intricate detailing and superior craftsmanship. Their expert-level techniques are a result of years devoted to honing their crafts, with many traditional practices passed down from generation to generation.
The carvings are truly a portal into the nation's rich artistic heritage and vibrant cultural past. For centuries, the Kisii tribe of Kenya, otherwise known as Gusii, have preserved the art of soapstone carving. They are considered to be the main soapstone carvers in the region and are widely regarded as the experts in this art form.
These items are hand made so there can be slight and subtle variations in size, color and shape. This is what makes each sculpture unique and a true piece of African art.
