Baltic Laser Cut Trivets and Coasters
These trivets and sets of four coasters 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 or resist water damage is due to the density of the wood used which resists the heat transfer or water well. Every item comes with a wooden tag that says balticbydesign hand-made in Maine USA. Red Dahlia or Sunflower available in trivets, and blue dahlia or sunflower in coasters.
