    Product Description

    This is a unique set of three soapstone Spider Web dishes.  Carved by hand with a fluted edge, this set contains a large 10″ diameter dish, a medium, 8″ in diameter dish and a small 6″ diameter dish.  All dishes are made from natural soapstone.  Though each dish is of natural creamy grey soapstone, the grain of each dish is unique.

    Soapstone is mined from quarries in the area surrounding Kissi, Kenya. The mined soapstone is then delivered to carvers who carve sculptures from the natural stone for the wholesale market, the color of which ranges from cream, to pink, to brown, to yellow, to black, to a marbling of all of them. Once carved, finish craftspeople smooth rough edges of the soapstone with sandpaper dipped in water, dye, paint or leave natural then polish the piece to a high sheen.

    This is a completely unique set.  Having been in Kenya for over 20 years, I have never seen another like it.   It is a great conversation piece, very useful for dry display or snack serving.  If you are a Halloween Party giver, how perfect for your snack table.

    The dishes are washable but not soakable.  Never having tried them in a dishwasher, I would say hand wash or wipe clean with a damp cloth.  Though they are of STONE, they are breakable. To keep a high sheen, use a wax and buff to a glow.

    Aina Moja is a project of Expanding Opportunities, a 501 c3 nonprofit and a registered NGO in Kenya.  100% of the profits are used for the projects of the organization, primarily for the support of orphaned and vulnerable children in Kenya or support of a wilderness camping experience for children in the USA.  We would be grateful if you would consider an additional gift for the children during your holiday celebrations. It is so easy click this link,  Child Giving to add a gift for an orphan or vulnerable child in Kenya or click this link, Campership, to add a wilderness campership in Maine for a needy child to your shopping cart.
