The ever popular reclaimed roofing slates in the Pop Craft Exchange Etsy shop have recently found their longest distance new home in Moscow, Russia.  Natalia selected two beautiful slates specifically for their texture and color.

On occasion a customer will tell me how they use their slate, sometimes accompanied by a picture.  I love seeing slates in people’s homes, and to hear about how the recipient is enjoying their natural treasure.  Natalia was kind enough to share her use for the slate, I was floored.

As a professional food photographer, Natalia Lisovskaya has used the slate as a charger in her picture perfect setting of stir fry and tea.  The composition is stunning and picks up the textured edge of the slate wonderfully.  I never imagined a reclaimed roofing slate could look so good!
