These coaster are the epitome of functional art. They look great hanging on the wall to match your decor and they work great handling the heat of a hot pot right off the stove top. The reason they handle the heat so well is due to the density of the wood used which resists the heat transfer well. Every trivet comes with a wooden tag that says balticbydesign hand-made in Maine USA.
Every Coaster set is a set of 4 with a cradle-style base and a gift box. People ask how they are with water and they are great! They are designed to trap the water down in the pattern so it doesn't stick to the glass. The water then dries out and does not harm the wood.
