Soft feminine lines, creamy natural kisii stone and just a touch of metallic shine coalesce in these beautifully simple oval bowls. Hand carved by Abagusii artisans in Kenya's western Kisii District, each is a stylish vanity or desktop accessory that can be treasured for years.
Kisii stone is found in abundant deposits in Kenya's highlands. Known widely as soapstone, it is a metamorphic rock similar to talc that can be easily carved into both realistic and abstract shapes with simple tools. The Abagusii excel at carving soapstone and several families in the Kisii area earn a steady income from carving sales.
