Food Slabs most often begin as freshly “grown” fieldstones that American Stonecraft sustainably hand-harvests at working farms. However, for our Notable Places series, we gathered a stone or two from a special place to show what can be found there and share this with the public. Each rock is unique in shape and color, comprised of metamorphic granite. Artisans craft each Food Slab from scratch in our Massachusetts studio using custom tools. The stone is transformed from a dull rock into a piece of art with impossibly brilliant color. This color is not the result of an outside product or lacquer, but of skilled grinding and polishing, smoothing away all roughness up to a 10,000 grit. Food Slabs also retain the natural “live” edge from the stone’s glacial tumbling.
All Food Slabs are protected with a permanent food-safe fluoride-based seal that penetrates any microscopic pores to prevent staining and allow for easy cleaning with soap and water. Provenance and your artisan is permanently labeled on the underside of each Food Slab and clear silicon feet have been added to protect tabletops. Each stone arrives packaged in an American Stonecraft gift box with your personalized gift note, if applicable.
Approximately 11″ long, 3.62 pounds. For scale, please consult the photo with a ruler shown next to the stone.
EVERY PLACE TELLS A STORY
Our Notable Places collection is intended to highlight the stories that these places conjure in our lives. American Stonecraft also makes Food Slabs that are custom sourced from your own special place.
