Bathrooms are the rooms we tend to forget about when thinking about our home's interior design, so this piece is the perfect little addition to add a bit of style. What makes them particularly special is that each one is totally unique, so they avoid that manufactured uniformity and mass-produced look.
Handmade by the Habulous team at their Dartmoor studio. Each piece is hand-thrown and dipped in our own unique glaze on the outside. The pieces are then fired to create these bright and contemporary soap dishes.
The pieces have been carefully designed to be effective in the most subtle ways. The ridged edges prevent the soap from sliding off and hand-poked drainage holes and clay feet work together to prevent any pooling in the dish.
This firing is an exciting process for us as it brings the pieces to life, transforming the glaze and clay into rich, yet sophisticated tones. The earthy greens and browns resemble the natural landscape, gorse and forest of Dartmoor, where these pieces are made, which makes their unique design particularly special to us. The natural clay, visible between the two glazes, bakes to a warm, cream colour, providing a gentle contrast in texture. We can only think of the moorland’s variety of terrain and those peaceful long walks across it when looking at these elegant soap dishes.
As each piece is handmade, yours may differ slightly from the ones shown in the images.
