Have you ever thought about kitchens of the past? Take a look at old farmhouses in the mid-west or in the Eastern states. These homes have much to tell us about history. What were people like and why did they use the materials that they did? Their kitchens told a story of practical and hard working families. People used their kitchens and picked materials that were useful to them. Many of those homes that still stand have the original soapstone on the counters or a soapstone sink in the kitchen or laundry area. Hard working kitchens with a quiet beauty that lasts. What worked well then also works as well now. Come see this lasting natural stone handcrafted into beautiful sinks and counter-tops at Soapstone Werks.
