About Us

The History of Soapstone Werks

As a stone sculptor, stone fabricator, and experienced tile setter, Greg Bergmann observed a growing interest in Soapstone in California. Greg began importing soapstone slabs for use by craftsmen wanting to install stone counters themselves. As the interest and demand grew, Greg realized there was a need for a supply of high quality soapstone and it’s installation. In 2004 Greg and his wife Wendy created Soapstone West. A few months later that year they assembled a team with Greg as the licensed general and specialty contractor for the company.

In 2008 Greg and Wendy made the decision to rebrand as Soapstone Werks, furthering their passion for the soapstone medium. Their vision was clear: provide excellent high quality soapstone, professional installation, offering custom sink and other specialty projects built with an artistic approach that can be incorporated into the practical applications of soapstone.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

Greg and Wendy have been delightful to work with from start to finish. They worked with us to select a stone that would work well for us and allowed us to position the best sections of the stone to show it off in our kitchen. We love the soft, natural look. It is exactly what we were looking for and Soapstone Werks really knows their product! Our favorite thing about soapstone is the beauty of the stone.
