They are groves carved on the sopastone counter to drain that section towards th sink. So you can wash dishes and put them there .

The sink likely came from the same place as the countertops:

You can find lots of interesting information by reading through previous questions.
Such a very nice kitchen, no wonder there are so many questions about it!

Love the drainage slots. May we use this photo in a blog entry for Marble & Granite, Inc., with appropriate credits of course, to demonstrate the drain concept?

I have had a soapstone countertop in my kitchen for almost 14 years. I love it and recommend it to anyone with a well lit kitchen. It is a great surface for a working kitchen. The first 2-3 years I was oiling the countertops every 10-14 weeks, but gradually became every 4-6 months and now once a year. Maybe the areas where I work more often I oil every 6-8 months. It is well worth the little bit of maintenance for anyone who truly works in their kitchen!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to Your Kitchen: Farmhouse Sinks
Just as we saw a play on materials in the classic kitchens, switching the same sink form to be cast in concrete takes on an industrial modern flair.
SoapstoneAlthough it's in no danger of overtaking granite, soapstone has come into its own as a countertop material. It offers subtle, nuanced beauty yet feels humbler than granite or marble. Pros: Soapstone has a natural softness and depth that fits very well with older and cottage-style homes. Although it usually starts out light to medium gray, it darkens with time. (Most people enjoy the acquired patina, but you may consider this a con.) Cons: Soapstone needs polishing with oil to keep it in top shape. It can crack over time, and it can't handle knife scratches and nicks as well as some other types of stone. The natural roughness of its surface can scuff glassware and china. Cost: $70 to $100 per square foot, installedMore about soapstone kitchen counters
Ivon Street Studio added this to Kitchen Counters: Durable, Easy-Clean Soapstone
Pros: Durability is soapstone's top bragging right. It's not unusual in the northeast parts of the U.S. to find soapstone sinks and wood-burning stoves from the 1800s that are still functioning today, so consider this countertop a lifetime investment. Soapstone is a terrific material for the kitchen, as it's unaffected by heat (proven by its historical use for stoves). Being chemically neutral means that acids like tomatoes and lemon juice won't damage it, and its density makes it impenetrable by everything, including bacteria and would-be stains.Cons: Its talc content makes soapstone softer than some other stone counters, which leads to edges and corners being eased over time. Nicks and scratches may accumulate too, which can be sanded out or considered part of its living patina. When selecting your slab, it's good to know that the greener the slab, the softer it is. So seek out slabs with less of a green cast if you want a harder slab.
