NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ--Jay Tauber, craftsman and owner of Garden State Soapstone, Slate and Wood Countertops, became involved w/ soapstone through a friend who was moving soapstone around the country early on before soapstone became popular. Jay has been in the business of creating and installing soapstone countertops as well as slate and wood countertops for fifteen years in New Jersey and surrounding states including PA, CT, NY, MD and DE even going as far as up to Maine and as far south as shipping a custom soapstone sink to the Virgin Islands. Jay’s unique work includes fabricating custome soapstone or slate sinks with built in countertops, fireplace surrounds and hearths, and more. Jay obtains his products through quarries located in Brazil, Portugal, India, Virginia, and anywhere in the USA.
His craft is specialized and his reputation as one of the few master artists working with soapstone supersedes him.
Jay has his engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken and University of California at Berkeley. Jay prefers prospective clients to call or email him directly, do some preliminary research and then visit for a consultation/education at his shop and showroom located in North Brunswick. That is how the process actually begins because an important part of Jay’s job is to listen to interested clients and then educate them about the products and how to proceed with the materials of choice, template and installation. Jay works with independent customers but also with contractors, architects and designers as obviously collaboration and coordination is key with this kind of work.
Jay prides himself on his commitment to his clients, the craft and his workmanship. Please check out Jay’s website www.gardenstatesoapstone.com for more in-depth information as well as the scope of his work. Jay’s work has been highlighted, photographed and reviewed on HOUZZ where he has received Best of HOUZZ awards yearly.
