Serve up some state pride at your next soiree with a slate silhouette of your home turf or favorite place to visit by Steven Chavez and Justin English. Cut and polished from all-natural slate, each board bears distinctive marks and stays naturally cool to keep cheeses at the ideal temperature for slicing and serving. The surface also makes handsome backdrop for appetizers hot and cold. An endlessly rewritable surface, slate can be marked with the included chalk, so you can add delectable details about each offering and how best to enjoy it. Made in Denver, Colorado.

About 80% of all soapstone quarried is deemed waste or scrap material. In an effort to regain control of this waste and turn it into something useful, Steven Chavez and Justin English set out to clean up the quarries and find a purpose for the discarded stone.

Soapstone is one of the most effective natural materials on earth for conducting and retaining temperature, so Steven and Justin turned to these natural properties to handcraft a beautiful line of soapstone kitchen and barware. They've recently expanded into stainless steel, bringing the same level of sophisticated design and utility to entertaining ware. Their company is based in Denver, where the majority of the products are handcrafted.

I bought this as a present for my future in laws. They live in New Jersey and absolutely loved it. It was perfect for them because they're in to entertaining their friends on a regular basis. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the board when I opened it. I would highly recommend buying it!!

photo is misleading.... it can hold a small piece of cheese and a few blueberries and sprig of rosemary... but i was hoping to put a couple of cheeses and crackers and be able to write the different types of cheeses with chalk... but there is no room. i love the uniqueness of it though....so i would probably recommend it with reservation...

    I love that this comes with the slate chalk. The MN state shape is pretty special and it looks lovely adorned with cheeses. I also ordered the Texas state and know my hostess will love hers too.

            My sister lives in FL but we grew up in VT. She immediately called to tell me it was like having a piece of our childhood home, as we had a large slate entryway. She was so touched and want to find a way to display this all the time.
