Near the shore of Lake Victoria, Kenyan artisans transform local kisii stone, or soapstone, into each one-of-a-kind elephant vase. Artisans start by hand-carving each vase with a panga, or broad blade knife, then engrave each one with an elephant scene. Each vase is finished with blue, green and black handmade dyes. No two pieces will be exactly alike. Colors and designs may vary slightly due to the handcrafted nature of each piece. Each kisii stone elephant vase measures 5 inches tall and has a 2 inch opening.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
