Brooklyn Slate Company

Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn Slate Company is a collaborative effort from Brooklyn graphic designer Sean Tice and Parsons graduate student Kristy Hadeka. After visiting Kristy’s family slate quarry in upstate New York in the spring of 2009, the two grabbed a few pieces for use as all-purpose boards back home in Brooklyn, and the rest, as they say, is history. They now make regular trips to the quarry to handpick their favorite pieces of slate. The couple then transports the stone to their studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn, where they cut and clean the stone and package each board with a burlap bag and soapstone pencil.
