Discover SPARQ Home
Founded in Denver by Steven Chavez and Justin English, SPARQ Home offers a stunning mix of tabletop and barware product - all designed to bring a touch of natural elegance to any occasion. Hand-crafted and made in the USA, the collection primarily focuses on visually appealing serving solutions and is made from high quality soapstone sourced from quarries across the globe.
Both Chavez and English have a real passion for preserving nature’s soapstone, and it was for this reason, SPARQ Home was established in the first place. In most quarries, up to 80% of all soapstone mined is deemed waste or scrap material. Generally when drilled, the soapstone breaks into smaller pieces and is therefore useless to many industries, such as kitchen work-top producers and the like. Sadly, the soapstone is generally considered scrap and is quite often dumped and simply used for nothing more than to line the roads leading into the quarries.
Chavez and English saw this as a devastating waste of an undervalued, but incredibly useful raw material. The stone’s natural properties of maintaining warm and cool temperatures for example, are as old as mankind itself. In fact, it is one of the most effective natural materials for conducting and retaining temperatures, and it was for this very reason, both Chavez and English started thinking about how they could work with these small slices of soapstone, to create a product that would be useful in the domestic home and kitchen. SPARQ Home was born.
From hand-crafted soapstone appetizer plates that will keep food cool or warm, to cheese-boards, pizza stones, a pestle & mortar and even a set of super-cool shot glasses to serve your favourite tipple…
SPARQ Home has everything you will ever need to ignite a celebration.
