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.

Make it a kitchen set, and pair the Sea Stone Splash Sponge Holder with our Sea Stone Spoon Rest.

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:

        The stones hold the sponge nicely and it looks fine with my decor. I know every item is made differently, but the one I got had 3 tan identical rocks on a bright white granite base with black sparkles in it. I was really hoping for a holder with 3 different colored rocks on a gray/brown/tan base. If the one that was sent to me was on a shelf in the store, I would not have purchased it. Otherwise, I really like the concept of it.

          I put it in my kitchen and it looks great. The sponge dries out and there is no pool of nasty water or slimey dish to clean.

                    Good, stable design for the kitchen sink. Doesn't take up too uch room and still is easy to clean and keep looking sanitary. It doesn't "tip" easily and fits most- if not all- sponges I've used. My granite top has most of the same colors in it so this holder looks like it was made especially for it. I'd but this again in a heartbeat! I'm going to buy one for a dear friend who is moving into a new home.

                      Finding a spot for the sponge after washing dishes was a minor annoyance. I saw this holder in the catalog and it was an elegant and unique way to solve the issue. It nearly matches the color scheme and counter top completely! My wife, who loves to organize, was happy with my purchase. It seems well done and should last a long time.
