ABOUT THE ARTIST 

Steven Chavez and Justin English

About 80% of all soapstone quarried is deemed waste or scrap material. In an effort to regain control of this waste and turn it into something useful, Steven Chavez and Justin English, founders of SPARQ Home, set out to clean up the quarries and find a purpose for the discarded stone. Soapstone is one of the most effective natural materials on earth for conducting and retaining temperature, so Steven and Justin turned to these natural properties to handcraft a beautiful line of soapstone kitchen and barware. They've recently expanded into slate and stainless steel, bringing the same level of sophisticated design and utility to entertaining ware. Their company is based in Denver, where the majority of the products are handcrafted.
