Turn entertaining into an art form and present in style
Slateware, designed by Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines and produced by Welsh Slate, is a bijou collection of beautiful slate plates, bowls, placemats, platters and other tableware.
Michael Caines, one of Britain’s top chefs, has an MBE for service to the hospitality industry. He says of the product: “I love presenting food on Welsh slate. The drama of the food set against a surface infused with history, texture and delicate hues deepens the adventure.”
Hand-crafted in the UK, the fine collection is made from Welsh slate and is hewn from the famous Penrhyn Quarry. At 500 million years old, the material is widely recognised as the highest quality natural slate in the world.
Effortlessly stylish design and timeless finish, the range combines the natural beauty of Welsh slate with the demands of modern-day dining. Designed with elegant, sharp lines to complement the contemporary presentation of food, the blend of sophisticated warm hues with a unique rich natural texture creates a perfect balance of soft allure and striking detail.
The slate’s bold appearance has been lovingly hand-polished by Welsh slate craftsmen to give it an ultra-smooth, luxurious feel. It combines a unique beauty with practicality, since it is also dishwasher-safe.
Welsh slate craftsmen have hand-dressed the edges of the collection to reflect slate's natural texture using centuries-old methods. This traditional approach is complemented by contemporary functionality, with indent to capture sauces and feet to maximise impact.
This collection has taken the presenting and serving of food and drink to the next level. Each beautiful piece is designed to make a statement from the first moment.
