What would that be you ask?
There are so many choices to make designing home so you try to think of different textures to keep things interesting. For walls we turn to wood or wallpaper.
With countertops we normally go with granite, marble, quartz or wood.
BUT......I have been checking out alternatives and came across Bastille Metal Works.
Started by Christopher Lee Plummer and Katrina Plummer Bastille Metal Works is the leading producer of custom cast Zinc and Pewter countertops in the world. They are located in Savannah and New York.
We are all familiar with RH tables covered in zinc but let's expand it a little....

These are all zinc examples but how about pewter?
What I learned about zinc is that it reacts to water, fingerprints, lemon juice and other things although eventually the marks blend together to leave the countertop with a beautiful dark blue gray patina.
You shouldn't cut on it and there might be warping if you put hot pots on it.
High maintenance but so is marble.
[and me I might add]
Zinc is about half the cost of pewter. Hence the reason I found most images of pewter used in commercial spaces like restaurant bars.

Zinc hood....yes but only in my dreams probably:(

Zinc counters that are antiqued with Amy Howard Home's solution
There are zinc sheets [darn say that 5 times in a row] and cast zinc which I understand might be better [15 gauge that is at least .060 thick]. It usually cost between $150-$200 @ square ft.
How many times can I use the word "zinc" in one post.
