Slate Starter Plates

$60.00 USD

Handcut from one of the world’s most naturally beautiful stones, our Slate Starter Plates are simple and elegant. Designed to bring a little luxury to any table, we think it would be a shame to use these plates for just starters and have used ours for everything from sushi to desserts!

Slate is the perfect material for serving cheese, pate, or cold dishes on, keeping it just the right temperature to be properly savoured. If you would like to write the names of each individual cheese on the board, all our boards can be written on with chalk. Just wipe clean with a damp cloth after use.

From Ireland to your doorstep.

In collaboration with Slated, we're bringing you an incredible collection of nautral slate and wood pieces. Established in 2010, Slated is an Irish family-owned and run luxury artisan homeware brand handmade in Dublin, Ireland. Founded by husband and wife team Ed and Tara Hammond, Slated creates beautiful slate homeware inspired by tradition. Ed Hammond comes from a long line of Master Slate Craftsmen whose traditional techniques and values have been passed lovingly from father to son since the beginning of the 18th Century. For generations the Hammond family have been renowned all over Ireland for their work roofing some of the country’s most iconic buildings.

Inspired by the natural beauty of the slate.

Tara saw the potential to create refined slate homeware. All Slated pieces are made using artisan techniques and methods, each piece meticulously handcrafted with a precious family heirloom, a 150 year old Slater’s Knife that has been passed from generation to generation of Hammonds.

Each piece is unique.

Each Slated piece is completely unique due to the natural integrity of the stone and as slate is an incredibly durable stone formed over millions of years each piece will last for generations. Slated is the only company in Ireland producing slate tableware in this age old method and they hand make everything from stunning cheese boards to striking candle holders in their Dublin studio. 

Each item sold by Department of Artisans employs an equal profit-sharing model.

Simply put, we make as much as our artisans do. The average split for each product is 40% artisan contribution, 40% DOA contribution, 20% importing + shipping fees. This means, our profits are the same as our artisans and we don't mark-up our prices like traditional retailers.

Here is the breakdown for this piece. 

The artisan contribution goes towards the cost of materials, the maker, and the project manager. The DOA contribution goes towards marketing + operating expenses, and community initiatives. The importing + shipping fees is paid out to each country during the exporting/importing process.

All shipments are securely packaged for safe and prompt delivery. We are happy to offer shipping worldwide. Please allow 1-2 business days for order processing.
