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 knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and always available for questions. It made the process less stressful. The installation was very professional, efficient and beautiful. Final result exceeded my expectations. We like that the soapstone is durable, beautiful and easy to care for. The clean-up is easy. I don’t worry about burning it nicks or scratches, rub a little wax on as needed. We would recommend soapstone to our friends but we know that the matte black color isn’t to everyone’s taste. We would definitely recommend Soapstone Werks to our Friends! Everyone we worked with was extremely knowledgeable and really cared about their service, craftsmanship and product. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Thank you for all your hard work and service!
