Conical Shell Vessel

This stunning kisii soap stone multi purpose vessel is hand carved with a abstracted conical shell texture on the outside. Kisii soapstone is mined by hand from quarries in Western Kenya. Carvers cut the large rocks into smaller pieces, then chisel a rough shape into the stone. Women then sand wash the stone pieces and polish them. The stone carvers of Kisii are one of many craft groups working alongside Trade Aid’s partner, Undugu Fair Trade

This stunning kisii soap stone multi purpose vessel is hand carved with a abstracted conical shell texture on the outside. Designed in New Zealand.

Please note that this vessel is not water tight, excess water can damage the soapstone as it is slightly porous. 

Size: 14 x 8 cm
