Scrubbing Baubles

The subject was utterly absorbing: how to add an artful touch to a common kitchen cleaning aid. Decorative beach stones and a base cut from salvaged granite—connected by three aluminum posts that store your sponge—do just that. The durable rubber bottom pad protects your surfaces from scratches. This stylish holder also makes a great wallet valet, inviting cocktail napkin holder, or stylish mail caddy. Handmade by Arra David and Anne Johnson in Windham, New Hampshire.


Sponge not included.

We took a road trip to visit Anne and Arra in New Hampshire, where they welcomed us with hard cider and put us straight to work. See the whole story on our blog.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“Inspiration ambushes me anytime, anywhere, and I welcome it.”

Arra David and Anne Johnson want everyone to get stones. So the longtime New England residents replace each smooth rock they harvest from the water with a rough one from a quarry that will eventually become a worn beauty in its own right. (All the wood they use in their designs is ethically forested, too.) Once their bounty is gathered, they sit down with a group of dedicated artisans they lovingly call "rockers" to handcraft their uniquely beautiful household items and barware. "We all work together as a closely knit family," says Arra. "We all put our hearts, brains, muscles, and fingertips into everything we build."

When I first saw this sponge holder on Uncommon Goods I fell in love with it. The image on the site depicts a simple, elegant piece of art that can be used to hold a kitchen sponge, of all things. In the image, each stone is unique, and the salvaged granite pops. Right down my alley.

Unfortunately, the stones on the one I received are similar shades of bland beige; two are beige, one a little lighter beige. Not unique. The granite is bland, rough, and unpolished. It doesn't pop.

The "durable rubber bottom pad is already peeling off, and I've only had it for about a week.

Not a happy customer.

                They are great, I bought two and they match my counter-top perfectly and my sponges have never kept dry so well. The design is beautifully simple. Two minor drawbacks: they're really only made for one sponge each; if you want to have two sponges in one holder, you really have to cram them in there. Also, if the bottom of the base gets wet, it tends to slide around (grips well when dry).

                    This sponge holder is highly functional (allows sponge to dry) and looks like a part of the countertop. Just remodeled our kitchen and this piece blends in beautifully with our quartz countertops and granite sink. Love it! Nothing else holds a candle to this piece if you are wanting a piece that looks as if it were part of the decor.

                        If the stones are going to be different - that's fine, but item should contain 3 different stones.
