SLATE HISTORICAL INFORMATION : This slate came from a 1860's Summer Kitchen in Stoutsville, Ohio. It was used as roofing shingles and was taken off when the kitchen was torn down. This kitchen was the site of canning, drying, smoking, pickling, butchering, summer cooking along with laundry and soap making. Early pioneers produced almost all of their own food, consequently, much time was spent in preservation of food for winter
Each unique plaque is individually handcrafted at T. Michael Studios from weathering grey slate. Rustic, Hand-cut slate with natural chipped edges. Around 1/4" thick. Slate finishes may vary due to natural coloring of rock.
SLATE: Each piece of slate is very special. Most of the slate I use has been reclaimed from Historical buildings and barns throughout the heartland. Every piece that leaves my studio has a history of its own, and a journey that it has taken. Once I receive it, I sculpt it and mold it into a new form for someone who now will use it to enhance their life and create a new history with their family.
