I had been looking for a soap dish that would perfectly fit my soaps. Then at a local craft fair, my booth was neighbors with the booth of Sunapple Studio-ARC Industries. I fell in love with their cause and loved meeting some of the special needs creators of their ceramics, as the Sunapple Studio-ARC Industries support artists with many different abilities who love to create beauty and art.
Some artists specialize in rolling out the clay while others work with textures and designs. Some of the artists at Sunapple Studio can’t open their hands. These artists are given a soft piece of clay to “squeeze” inside their hands, and then with gentle assistance, they release the clay. This method is what creates the handscape. The handscape is then added to the base of the soap dish to keep the soap from sticking to the bottom of the dish.
The final result is a one-of-a-kind, beautifully designed soap dish. You can feel good knowing that your purchase supports paid skill development useful in employment opportunities for adults with unique abilities.
