Raise the Bar

In the world of bathroom décor, the soap dish is sadly often an oversight—and kind of a soapy mess. This sculptural soap rest from ceramicist Monica Greco is designed to perch on the edge of your sink, letting excess water drain away and extending the life of your bar of soap. Monica applies her background in research science to developing special glazes, which give the piece an earthy loveliness and earn it a place of honor in your master bath or guest washroom. Handmade in Maryland.

Made in Maryland

It’s no surprise that Monica Greco takes a scholarly approach to her work as a ceramicist—her first career was in higher education. After earning a PhD in experimental psychology, she taught statistics and research methodology. She began pottery classes as a hobby, but the more she developed her creative abilities, the more she began to see how her research skills could be combined with her new craft. She applied her experimental mindset to creating glazes as well as the functional design of her pieces. And after 20 years in academia, Monica made the transition to being a full-time potter, producing work that is as innovative as it is beautiful.

Love how pretty it is and how much longer my bars of soap last.

Good, not perfect

I bought this to go with the coordinating utensils holder I already had (which I use for scrubbing brushes). I use the soap holder for my kitchen sponge. It looks nice peeking over the edge of my granite countertop, and it does a nice job of letting the sponge dry out. The one thing I am less than thrilled about is that the bottom of the dish does not sit as firmly on the counter as I would like. I think it might be more stable if it had more mass at the back of the piece. It has stayed in place so far, but I'm always afraid I'll knock it into the sink.

I would buy it again and recommend it to anyone.

I had tried several soap dishes and always ended up with soap sitting in water. When I saw this I thought it was pricey but then thought about how much money I'd spent on soap dishes that just didn't work. We've had it for a couple of weeks and it is great.

I use this in my personal bathroom. Not only is the design delightful, the design actually works very well. Wet residue drips right down the spout. No mess. Also the backstory by the artist also is a factor for me on any purchase that is personally made. I also have the matching toothbrush holder!!!!

Beautiful and Functional

We love this item, it is beautiful and functional. We have used soap dishes for several years now, but were always left with gunk and residue which required cleaning. Defeats the purpose of soap! This ingenious design solves that problem and is beautifully crafted with nice color variation. Perfect for a master/guest bathroom.

Clever idea

Use for bathrooms but if u use soap at any sink - this would be ideal as it lets the soap drain and dry off.

I'm actually using this as a spongenholder!

I actually use this for my sponge in my kitchen sink! I have the river stones sponge holder which is gorgeous and very unique. Then I saw this and it was so earthy and beautiful, I had to have it. It wouldn't work for me as a soap holder (I don't have flat base that it will fit in the bathroom) but it definitely does as a sponge holder! It holds the sponge perfectly and the water drains right into th sink! Now I have two gorgeous pieces or art to hold my sponge and I switch back and forth displaying each one. I smile every time I do the dishes!
