The Slated Story - SLATED

The Slated Story

slate company

Established in 2010, SLATED is an Irish family owned and run luxury artisan home-ware brand handmade in Dublin, Ireland. Founded by husband and wife team Ed and Tara Hammond, SLATED create beautiful slate home-ware inspired by tradition.

Ed Hammond comes from a long line of Master Slate Craftsmen whose traditional techniques and values have been passed lovingly from father to son since the beginning of the 18th Century. For generations the Hammond family have been renowned all over Ireland for their work roofing some of the country’s most iconic buildings.

Inspired by the natural beauty of the slate, Tara saw the potential to create refined slate home-ware. Together Ed and Tara created a fresh cut slate table runner for their home and this sparked an enduring interest and passion to utilise the beauty of slate in the home.

All pieces are made using artisan techniques and methods, each slate is meticulously handcrafted with a precious family heirloom, a 150 year old Slater’s Knife that has been passed from generation to generation of Hammonds.

Each SLATED piece is completely unique due to the natural integrity of the stone and as slate is an incredibly durable stone formed over millions of years each piece will last for generations.

SLATED are the only company in Ireland producing slate tableware in this age old method and they hand make everything from stunning cheese boards to striking candle holders in their Dublin studio. Over the years SLATED have continued to push design boundaries and have introduced other complementary natural materials such as copper and Irish wood that complement and enhance the beauty of their slate pieces.

Creating the pieces from raw slate to finished piece in their Dublin studio allows for SLATED to collaborate and create bespoke pieces for clients, something we absolutely love to do.

To date we have worked with some of the world’s top brands at home and abroad including Jameson, Kerrygold, Powers Whiskey, Supervalu and the Royal Mirage Hotel Group, their pieces can also be found in some of the best restaurants around the world.

SLATED is loved all over the world and is currently stocked in exclusive stockists in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Paris, Japan, London and Toronto. Closer to home SLATED is available in stockists around Ireland, including House of Ireland, Louis Mulcahy and Slane Castle.
