Slate of the Art

You'll want to go back to the drawing board when you can hone your knowledge of artisanal cheese on this striking slate platter that doubles as a chalkboard. Created by Brooklynites (and self-described foodies) Sean Tice and Kristy Hadeka, they source their gorgeous pieces of natural slate from Kristy's third-generation family quarry in upstate New York. After using the material as trivets and coasters in their own home, the duo discovered that this distinctive, organic surface also makes a stunning backdrop for cheeses & hors d'oeuvres. Plus, the lovely, dust-free soapstone chalk pieces let you clearly label your wedges, crumbles, and slices, so guests will never pull a dreaded foodie faux pasólike mixing up the brie with the camembert! Boards are available in red or black and possess a one-of-a-kind natural edge. Packaged with a burlap bag alongside chalk and anti-slip padded cork feet.

Made in 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.

VERY Cute and Classy Present

My husband LOVED it! We live in a cramped apartment, so it was nice to have something so aesthetically pleasing and sleek. It would look absolutely beautiful if we were entertaining, but it's so easy-to-use and practical that we can use it any day.

Unique cheeseboard

My mother was very excited to receive this gift. Her and my dad entertain often so this will get used a lot. The soapstone chalk is very nice and it easily washes off the cheeseboard. It's a great size for entertaining, unique and looks stylish.
