The Soapstone Industry, Africa 1.8

      Soapstone sculpture is the primary industry in Kisii, Kenya. Soapstone can only be found in this area and its production is one of the main sources of commerce. In the Tabaka ward, where we are doing the majority of our work, there are rows and rows of shops filled with soapstone sculptures and domestic wares. All of the work for these pieces are done by hand and the pieces are truly incredible.
