Slate4U was established in October 2012 in Shankill, Co. Dublin. I got my inspiration of working with slate when I was on a family holiday with my lovely wife and daughter in Valentia Island in Co. Kerry. It was here that I was drawn to the attraction and beauty of natural rocks. I began to wonder how this material could be used in everyday life. On returning home, I created my first standing clock which is called “Number One”.
As time went on I broadened my offer of other beautiful items made from hand–crafted natural slate. Each piece of slate is unique as it is a natural material. It may contain elements of Pyrite (also known as Fool’s Gold).
In our range of products you can find different types of plaques with engraved Celtic symbols, famous quotes and sayings. If you are looking for a unique, personalised gift, we can engrave a special message, name, surname, poet’s quotation, old Irish saying, Celtic design, image or logo onto slate. Slate4U make all kinds of house signs and door numbers. Each house sign is customised to the client’s requirements. You can choose the size, style of lettering as well as image, while they provide the ideal end product. The techniques we use include Hand Engraving, Hand Painting and Laser Engraving.
