These hand-carved soapstone plates are a gorgeous accompaniment to your current china or earthenware. For use with starters and snacks for your dining table or dinner party.
Sustainably mined in Kenya, soapstone is a beautifully tactile metamorphic rock with an appearance similar to marble. The natural variations in the surface are part of its unique beauty. Soapstone is non-porous and heat-resistant, making it great for a wide range of uses.
Our soapstone products are polished and treated with natural beeswax.
