Working with soft soapstone found in the Kisii District of Kenya, Gusii artisans hand carve small decorative bowls for use throughout the home. Artisans in a Nairobi workshop give the plain stone pieces character by hand dyeing the stone a rich blue and black, and adding incised details reminiscent of the patterns on Kuba cloth.
