"great home"

looks amazing and works beautifully, my wax has melted all over and has created an almost jade like finish. i get compliments if i leave it out when people come over. just take the top off and drop a tea light in and with a match or stick burner light it up.

"Gift for my Maid of Honour"

I love love love the work of this artist. This handcrafted jali soapstone vase treasures was a gift for my Maid of Honour at our wedding. I wanted to thank my ladies with something that took human work and consideration and that shared some natural beauty of our world. I was so glad to be able to give back to the artist too. Wow. This vase is gorgeous, beautifully conceived and crafted, maybe best for dried flowers or a small pot inside to hold water. Forever grateful!
