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
My husband thought that I was a little crazy for going with something different and having two different hard surfaces (we have both granite and soapstone). Now he really likes it and thinks it was a good choice. We love our sink. It is easy maintenance and was built exactly how we wanted it. The office staff at Soapstone Werks was great-they always called back and were easy to talk to. When it came to installation time Greg and the boys were on time, installed quick, and careful about my flooring. My favorite thing about soapstone is that it is so easy to maintain and durable, it always looks good. Soapstone clean-up is easy; I just wipe it with my sponge and I don’t have to worry about streaking or a residue as I do with my granite. I would recommend Soapstone Werks and Soapstone to my friends. I have a friend who has honed black granite, which gives the same look but it is not as durable. She likes the look but would not put it in again.
