How it came to be: It all started with our first international customer. At our workshop, we celebrate all achievements no matter how big or small and getting our first international order was no exception. We reached out to the customer and asked if there is anything that we could add to the shipment as a thank you for being our first. They mentioned that their son was fascinated with the night sky and that he has wanted a small display of a constellation. When I was drawing the design I was trying to capture what traveling towards a constellation would look like. The first draft had a plain black background that looked flat and static. I decided on adding blue because of blueshift, the displacement of the spectrum to shorter wavelengths in the light coming from distant celestial objects moving toward the observer. In other words, as light emitting objects, like stars, travel towards an observer they seem more blue. So in my mind, traveling towards a constellation is black and blue. That design was used on the wooden coasters I still sell. From those wooden coasters the slate coasters were born. How it's made: After an order is placed we receive the personalization and first check if we have the constellation already drawn. If we do not we start drawing that particular constellation. Then we place the custom text in the text ring after which the design part is done. Manufacturing starts with cleaning the slate blanks. Then we engrave them and coat them with 2 coats of lacquer. Leaving them uncoated leaves them looking very gray and "dusty". The walnut holders are cut on a CNC, have their edges routered and are then sanded. They are coated with a mineral oil and left to dry.

I didn’t expect this to come in so soon but it is PERFECT. I bought this for my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary and I cried when I opened it. Vlad is very communicative and responsive and the work is just gorgeous. I thought it would take longer so now I have to wait to give it to my husband and I am so excited. I will absolutely come back for more stuff. Would recommend to everyone!!

Vlad went above and beyond what was expected! I wanted to recreate a letter that my boyfriends grandfather had given to him before he passed away, and Vlad went as far as trying to replicate the handwriting from the letter. It was such a nice touch and I could not recommend this seller enough. Amazing work!

Update! Unparalleled Customer Service! This conscientious artist and craftsmen replaced my damaged item. Thank you so much! The new item arrived in excellent condition. I highly recommend this beautiful,
moving butterfly!
******************************
Exquisitely beautiful, but fragile mechanical butterfly! One of the
wings arrived with a hairline crack at the hinge. I will glue it to the butterfly body to prevent further damage.

This lovely creation is even more wonderful in person! It holds special meaning to me, as I have been raising Monarch butterflies for a long time. Will definitely purchase from Vlad again, he's truly an artist and such a kind soul.

I loved it when he sent me the proofs before it was done, and I love it now! It looks exactly how I imagined and I can’t wait to give it to one of our D&D players. Shipping was quick, and seller was very responsive.
