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.

After visiting Kristy Hadeka's family slate quarry in upstate New York in the spring of 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 now make regular trips to their family quarry in upstate New York to hand pick their favorite pieces of black and red slate. The pieces are then transferred to Kristy and Sean studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn, where they do additional cutting and clean the stone to be food safe. In order to achieve the rough look of their unfinished pieces, they chip the edges with a slate cutter and other tools.
