Meet The Creator
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. They found a number of purposes for the slate—from trivets for tea kettles and hot dishes to coasters for beers—and began gifting pieces to friends. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that the two struck out to produce a line of slate products, handpicked from the quarry “graveyard,” where slate is ultimately destined to be ground for use as road cover or baseball diamonds. Every single piece of packaging that comes with their products, from the envelope to the burlap bag, can be repurposed for other uses.
