Sand-Carved Slate Plaques For Home & Garden
Our gardens and homes are places of comfort and contemplation.
We began carving words into slate 20 years ago in our rural Northern California studio and hang slate plaques with poetry and prose in the garden, in the orchard, next to the chicken coop; anywhere and everywhere that we might pause, take a breath, and be grateful for the life and beauty around us.
We would like to share with you the peace and simple pleasure we have found in our own lives and invite you to create your own places for contemplation and comfort.
We would be pleased to be part of that process.

Slate, by its very nature, has variations in color and texture. Each piece we create has its own unique quality and can be clear, swirled, or exhibit different shades of gray. The examples on the following pages are simply that - examples, and the finished pieces we create for you will have their own unique character which will closely resemble, but may not be identical, to the examples shown.
Please note: The garden background shown behind the slate photos is not a part of the product.
We will pre-drill holes and include screws for hanging your slates. Please do not overtighten screws when hanging, especially if you live in a freeze/thaw area. Leave a bit of play to avoid slate cracking under pressure.
Each piece is made individually, and we will endeavor to ship within two weeks of receiving your order.
All work on this and the following web pages is copyrighted by the artist.
