“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.
