Are you familiar with the bowerbird? Native to Australia and Papua New Guinea, the male builds these elaborate and colorful structures to court a mate. Each structure contains twigs and bits of collected items (shells, stones, glass, plastic etc). They're beautiful.
If I were to have a spirit animal, it would be the bowerbird. Ever since I was a child, I have loved to collect things I find when I am out and about. Usually it's rocks but if I am at the beach it could be shells, sea glass or any other trinket. It's gotten to the point that our family accounts for this activity whenever we make travel plans (as in, "make sure there's time for Peggy to pick up her rocks"). I wanted to find a use for all these found objects so I have transformed them into beautiful and functional resin soap dishes. Each is completely unique. Plus, since we can't travel right now I wanted to create something that can remind me of special places. The first batch of soap dishes is a celebration of France.
The picture shown here is for illustrative purposes only. All the stones and objects are from the South of France. The soap dish you receive will be different but they all contain a mix of stones and other found objects such as coins, sea glass, tile, beads, etc. Each dish also includes a stone engraved with the word discover, as a reminder to look for the beauty in every day items.
Each dish is 3" x 5". To clean, softly scrub with a kitchen sponge and warm water. These are not dishwasher safe.
