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 months.

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.
QUALITY : What separates me from the others, is a high attention to detail and quality. I make sure each plaque is crafted to my high standards and won't send anything out until I am satisfied, which makes you satisfied....I take geat pride in what I do and have been passionately working in the arts for 12 years now and make these slate plaques for wonderful people around the world. I appreciate your business and enjoy working with you to make these special plaques that represent the love of your family and Home.
SHIPPING : I Ship World-Wide....2 to 3 days to ship out of studio.
