Soapstone one of the New Seven Wonders of the World

Brazil’s famous statue “Christ the Redeemer” holds out it’s arms invitingly.  It towers over the hills and cities wrapped in a cloak of soapstone.  Built with steel enforcements and hardened concrete, the statue’s outer layer is made from soapstone! Soapstone was chosen by the designer and carver Heitor da Silva Costa and French sculptor Paul Landowski because of it’s resistance to extreme weather and pliability.  Thousands flock to the religious monument and it has become a world-renowned figure.  Featured in books and movies the statue has become increasingly popular.  You can have a piece of this New Seven Wonders of the World in your own home! Soapstone’s beauty, versatility, and resilience extends into its use as a counter-top surface in kitchens, bathrooms, and fireplaces. Come in and see the beauty of the material used on Brazil’s most famous monument for yourself.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

The office staff was very helpful and friendly, even your young sons. Greg and the boys did a fast, clean job. We enjoyed watching Greg teach his trade. My favorite thing about the soapstone is that I’m able to set my hot pots on it. There really isn’t any soapstone cleanup, we just wipe down the counters. We would absolutely recommend soapstone and Soapstone Werks to our friends-we just love it and you guys were so nice! Soapstone Werks is the kind of company you want to work with. They are honest, helpful, and timely. They let you know everything up front so that there is no wondering about this or that. You are completely prepared for your purchase and install.
