Maiden Name and Mater Soap present a numbered edition of 15 printed bars of soap made by hand and hand-stamped in Red Hook, Brooklyn by Addison Walz (b. 1985, New York).  The bars are double blocks of Mater's charcoal bars (made of all natural ingredients). 

“THE DETAILS LEFT TO CHANCE,” is inspired by the last poem written by the American poet Lorine Niedecker (1903-1970), “Darwin,” in which the poet imagines the scientist looking back on his own life, contemplating how it took shape, and how it (like all things) would come to dissolve:

the universe

         not built by brute force

                     but designed by laws

   The details left


to the working of chance
