Ceramic soap dish, handmade Acqua.
Elegant, tactile, handmade turquoise porcelain soap holder.
Combining sculpture and design, I create functional unique pieces.
This porcelain soap holder has a delicate unique design, it will add a modern accent to your home, or it will make for a treasured gift for any ceramic lover.
It is great for keeping your soap tidy in the bathroom. It has three holes pierced in its base and four small round feet which lift the plate allowing the water to drain away keeping your soap ready to use.
This piece has been slab-built in my studio in Digbeth, the creative heart of Birmingham, UK. It has then gone through a first firing up to 900 degrees.
It has a smooth tactile surface that makes it irresistible not to touch it. To get that beautiful finish I carefully sand the piece until I feel it is smooth enough and then I glaze it. It is then fired a second time up to 1250 degrees to make the soap dish waterproof, strong and durable.
This ceramic soap dish comes beautifully packaged in a gift box with a handmade accent and is then placed in a secure posting box.
Actual soap dish may differ from photograph. Each piece is individually made so there will be slight variations in colour and shape, which is part of their charm.
