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:

      I bought two for the kitchen - one to hold a dish sponge and the other to hold a counter sponge. Fun and interesting way to store something that's typically not attractive. One is in tans and the other in grays so they complement each other nicely. I suspect they will get lots of comments from visitors. I've never seen anything like them before!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was incredibly fast! I ordered late Tuesday night and received the package Thursday afternoon. Well packed.

            Finally a sponge holder that does allow the sponge to dry. I have gone through several sponge holders & this is by far the best. The artist is a genius.

                  I love this sponge holder. The stones are natural and durable. It takes up little space by the sink and I have found the sponge can be tilted into sink and making excess water easily drained away.

                  Prompt service and careful packing.

                    I love nature inspired products. I hesitated for awhile before buying as I thought the price was too high but couldn't stop thinking of how much nicer it would look on my kitchen sink compared to the flat rubber holder I was using. I am SOOO happy that I decided to purchase. I love it!!
