Soapstone, also known as kisiistone, is mined from great pitsin Kenya and carved into sculptures.The craftspeople smooth the roughedges with sandpaper dipped in water and polish the pieces to a high gloss or paint them with etched accents. All of the soapstone carving are completely handmade. The tools consist of household items from screwdrivers and hand drills to switchblades. The artists are paid fair wages for their talents.
