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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Sea Stone Splash Sponge Holder:

      It's really attractive and very practical. It dries the sponge after use helping to eliminate that awful musty smell and prolong the life of the sponge. It's compact enough to fit on the sink's edge and hardy enough to take a few accidental drops. It's really well done. The stone idea is quite unique and fits in with every decor really. I have a kind of rustic old home with some pretty primitive decor - a country look. My son and daughter in law have a more traditional somewhat modern decor. It looks great in both places! And I think the price is very reasonable.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Sea Stone Splash Sponge Holder:

      I bought this kitchen sponge holder a few weeks ago after months of frustration with other regular "tray" holders for my kitchen sponge that kept my sponge wet and "stinky". This holder is just what I wanted! It holds my sponge upright so it dries faster, doesn't get "smelly", doesn't hold excess water, and looks really wonderful on my counter. An added bonus is that it is heavy enough that my two active cats cannot knock it around!- or get at the sponge. What more could one want?

      Great idea for those who have granite counter tops and who use sponges. Would have liked more variety in the color of the stones.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Sea Stone Splash Sponge Holder:

      This product caught my eye at least a year ago when flipping through Uncommon Goods website. I haven't been able to get it out of my mind since. I really wanted a new sponge holder, since I have been using an old glass dish (probably an ashtray) of my grandmother's for a while, but hate how the sponge just lays in a pool of drained water. I ordered this beauty, and it was shipped immediately in 2 DAYS!!! I couldn't wait to open it up. I already knew the color of the stones vary and didn't care! Adds to its uniqueness! They are PERFECT, and I just LOVE THIS PIECE OF ART on my sink! It's just the coolest thing! I LOVE the rubber bottom so NO scratches, and it's nice and heavy and will hold my sponge (and other things too like cocktail napkins or a wallet like suggested) without falling over! It's SO reasonably priced and SUCH a great gift idea! BRAVO to you guys for your creativity and inspiration to make nature ART! Just ordered one for a friend - just because. I have an idea this will be Christmas gifts, bridal shower gifts, birthday gifts.....many many more times in the future!

        This sea stone splash sponge holder is an artistic way to keep a sponge handy and dry. I have a granite countertop and thought that the stone motif would fit right in (more than a cutesy animal holder, for example), and it does. I am very pleased with both the look and the workmanship of this item.
