Just Slate

justslatecakeSlate is one of those materials which looks simply beautiful, but can be so prohibitively expensive that it just makes the product impractical. Just Slate however, seem to have bridged the gap between hand cut slate and affordability by bringing out a range of budget pieces.

Each piece of slate is made by grinding and fusing rock together over a long period of time under a huge amount of pressure; it is then hand cut by their skilled workers and crafted into beautiful kitchenware in their workshop in Scotland (where you can also watch them in progress)

I stumbled upon the range on sale in John Lewis and the beauty of each piece really struck me despite their simple design. Just Slate has turned ordinary items such as coasters, placemats, cheese boards, and trays into something really extraordinary.

My favourite item on sale has to be the three tier cake stand – three circular pieces of slate held together by a thick metal pole running through the centre. On paper there isn’t much to shout about, but when you see it you’ll see just why I love it.

Buy the pieces from John Lewis or here at the Just Slate website
