African Kisii Stone Giraffe Dish

Near the shore of Lake Victoria, Kenyan artisans transform local kisii stone, or soapstone, into each one-of-a-kind giraffe dish. Artisans start by hand-carving each dish with a panga, or broad blade knife, then engrave each one with an giraffe scene. Each bowl is finished with orange, black, brown, and green 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 giraffe dish measures 4 inches by 4 inches and 1 inch deep.

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.
