The first few items in my new Forest Treasures bathroom range have rolled out. Cast in epoxy resin, the first member of this new family is a leaf shape inspired soap dish. Although I've yet to name this dish, it will most likely simply become 'Leaf'.
So far, I've created the 'Leaf' soap dish in a couple of solid colours and several clear/opaque tints, including blues and greens. It is my intention to produce the range in cool water colours and warm earth tones.
'Leaf' has water draining slots molded in ... reminiscent of the veins in a real leaf ... which take water away from the soap. The slots are vented to the outside beneath the hollow bottom.
Currently, the retail price for the 'Leaf' Soap Dish from Forest Treasures is AUD75. Soap dishes are available from my market stall (Gilmour Artforms) at the Port Douglas Artisan's Market every Sunday in Port Douglas, Australia, and by direct email contact. They will be available online in my Forest Treasures Etsy store soon.
