Details

In Southeast Asia it is said that when Buddha's mother was about to give birth, she dreamt a white elephant came to her offering a lotus, symbol of purity and knowledge. When Buddha is depicted riding an elephant, it is believed it will bring good luck and health. Putu Oka Mahendra transforms legend into a mesmerizing ceramic teapot featuring a rattan handle.

"Perfect for guestrooms"

It is really hard to find a soap dish that is made for smaller soaps. These were the perfect size, well sculpted, and I had to actually explain they were soap dishes because they are so cute!

"What a cheerful helper in the kitchen!"

I love this Opera Frog. It perks me up every time I see it. It is a reminder of the frogs wintering over outside in my garden.
