Etch Soapstone Vessel
This Etch Soapstone Vessel is a collaboration between Citta and Asili Design. The vessel is designed in our New Zealand studio by product designer Nikolai Sorensen. It’s then skillfully hand-carved in Kenya by Asili.
The design celebrates the handmade nature of the manufacturing process. Each piece is intentionally irregular with etched grooves that provide a more structured element. The two design features are combined to give the vessel a topographical feel.
Carved from raw pink soapstone using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations. Produced within a fairtrade environment that supports the artisans, their families and communities in Western Kenya.
Wipe clean using warm damp cloth. Avoid leaving liquids sitting on the surface as this can stain the product. Saopstone is a natural material, variations between products may occur.
