Athena Calderone has teamed up with Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. to create a limited-edition large-scale butcher block. The block Athena initially designed for her home represents a merging of worlds – culinary and design – two fields that she has uniquely mastered. As cooking is part of Athena’s daily routine (she authored a James Beard Award-Winning cookbook in 2017), she was driven to turn her most functional workhorse in her kitchen into something beautiful – a union where form and function meet aesthetics.
Hand-carved from pure blond maple wood, this block is just as beautiful as it is functional. Material rich, this piece offers a solid, end-grain sugar maple cutting surface with anti-slip and non-marring rubber feet.
Designed in collaboration by Black Creek Mercantile & Trading Co. and Athena Calderone, the butcher block is made from sustainably sourced domestic hardwood and food-safe, non-toxic finishes. Made in Kingston, New York, each piece bears a natural character that will lend itself to generations of use.
Material and Finish: Bleached maple end grain, hand-rubbed non-toxic linseed oil finish. Wood is a natural material and there may be imperfections and variations in every block.
Dimensions: 15” x 20” x 2.5”
Shipping and lead time: Please note this item is handmade to order by a small team. Each block has a lead time of approximately 4-6 weeks once purchased. Our current flat rate shipping within the US is $50.
Returns: This item is final sale and non-refundable.
