Slated for Success

Created by Brooklynites (and self-described foodies) Sean Tice and Kristy Hadeka, Brooklyn Slate Company sources their gorgeous pieces of natural slate from Kristy's third-generation family quarry in upstate New York. After using the material as trivets and cheese plates in their own home, the duo discovered that this distinctive, organic surface also makes a stunning and practical resting spot for hot and cold drinks. Each unique red or charcoal colored drink rest is backed with anti-slip padded cork rounds, which help protect surfaces from unsightly scratches. Slate pieces are cut and cleaned by hand and possess a one-of-a-kind natural edge for an eye-catching blend of the rustic and refined. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.

“Our shop and office are one and the same, which encourages open communication between everybody.”

After visiting Kristy Hadeka's family slate quarry in upstate New York in 2009, she and Sean Tice grabbed a few pieces to use as all-purpose boards back home in Brooklyn. They found a number of purposes for the slate–from trivets for tea kettles and to coasters for beers—and began gifting pieces to friends. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that the two set out to produce a line of slate products. They duo hand-pick slabs of black and red slate from her family quarry cut and clean the stone to be food safe in their studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

        Slate coasters very nice -- more impressive in hand than looking at an image online. I bought two sets and should have bought three.

              I bought these coasters for my mother after my puppy destroyed her cork ones. I got them in red and they look much better than on the screen. I was worried they would be too bright or look dyed. My only concern is that the corners seem very thin and could chip easily.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The packaging was great and came on time undamaged.

                I love these, they are beautiful, match my table wonderfully, and very unique. Each one is slightly different, and love the rough cut edges.

                Came on time, wrapped well without even a chip in them, very satisfied

                  These are very nice looking coasters. I purchased them for a man that I feel is hard to buy for. He has everything he needs! It seemed like the perfect gift.
