Slate Optic

From their Lancashire workshop, this family business create the most stunning handcrafted slate optic dispensers.

A family business, operating from their Lancashire workshop, handcrafting these most stunning Slate Optic Dispensers.

Richard and Susan, a husband and wife team, create these gorgeous optics through their company, Adonis Designs. In 2017, Richard finally took the plunge to make his passion his career after giving up the rat race life he was living. Honing the woodworking and crafting skills that he had learnt passed through the generations in his family from his father and grandfather, Richard began extending his weekend projects into a full time business, handcrafting these stunning optic dispensers from slate, wood and metal. All materials used are to the highest quality.

As there are natural variants in slate, each optic is unique and individual. Like AUTHOR, Adonis Designs aim to be as environmentally friendly as they can, eliminating the use of plastic packaging and only using card or paper to wrap their beautiful dispensers in. They also source, where possible, their materials and equipment from local businesses across the region.

These slate optics are a perfect addition to your home with their attractive, sleek and simple design. They allow you to be your own bartender when hosting and add something fun and quirky to your bar cart or home bar. The straightforward step of pressing the button to release the perfect measure is such a welcoming comfort to come home to and the end of a stressful week or quick and easy to use when hosting guests.

We love the passion Adonis Designs have for being as environmentally friendly as possible. This is something that AUTHOR's own ethos follows which is why we couldn't be happier to work with Richard and Susan.
