From hand-crafted soapstone appetizer plates that keep food cool or warm to chic, soapstone whisky rocks that chill drinks, Sparq delivers high-quality and visually appealing serveware and tabletop products. Spaq is based in Denver where the majority of its products are hand-crafted and made in the USA. Originally, they were founded on a mission to preserve nature’s soapstone quarries across the globe.
In most quarries, up to 80% of all soapstone mined is deemed waste or scrap material. When making large cuts of stone, the scrap stone far outweighs the useful slabs. As such, these blocks of scrap stone are left behind, lining the roads of the quarries. In an effort to regain control of soapstone waste and make useful a stone that has so much to offer, founders Steven Chavez and Justin English have set out to clean up the disastrous quarries worldwide and find a purpose for the discarded soapstone.
Chavez and English turned to the stone’s natural properties of maintaining warm and cool temperatures. The use of soapstone for its temperature properties is as old as mankind. In fact, it is one of the most effective natural materials this planet produces for conducting and retaining temperature.
