Soapstone Birdbaths are the ultimate statement in luxury for any classic garden!
Soapstone is a great medium for artistic expression, and its strength makes it durable and able to handle extreme temperatures while never absorbing any of its contents.
No two soapstone slabs or boulders are exactly alike, making it a beautiful medium to work with because no two birdbaths will turn out exactly the same. The great variety in color means you can get soapstone in just about any color.
Colors vary greatly, but depend largely on where the soapstone comes from. Colors vary from greens to grays,and everything in between. “Veining” usually reserved for the finest marbles, are common in Soapstone countertops. Because the slab color is a natural process doesn’t mean you’re powerless to personalize it – mineral oils can be applied to darken or lighten the tones, or you can go “Au Naturel”. Browse our slab gallery below for more details.
It’s not uncommon to hear of Soapstone products being passed on from one generation to the next, lasting many generations in some cases. And why not – if it does get scratched or dented you can easily sand these out. In fact, this is one of the most unique things about Soapstone. Other cookware surfaces would all require costly replacements should you scratch or dent them, not so with Soapstone!
Its durability makes Soapstone ideal for being placed in your garden with little to no maintenance necessary.
