Concrete Kitchenware for Your Home
The hexagonal pattern on these concrete coasters serve as a conduit to wick condensation away from the bottom of a wet glass. All coasters are backed with a cork bottom for added protection for the surface they are placed on. These coasters offer the benefit of being both absorbent and relatively stain resistant since the sealer that we use yields just the right porosity to our coasters. It is noteworthy to mention that the white color is the most stain resistant to the condensation/water stains that can occur with cold drinks. Please note that although they are sealed to resist staining, they will certainly develop character/patina over the years.
These coasters are not composed of typical concrete. Each one is composed of an advanced cementitious mix which utilizes extremely small particulate, very little water, and reactive recycled pozzolans. The result is an incredibly strong, smooth, and tactile surface that is more similar in physical characteristics to ceramic or aluminum than it is to concrete! We cast each unit in a handmade mold for about a week. We then hand burnish each, and then apply three coats of an FDA-approved sealer.
(Please note: While our concrete mix design yields an aesthetically predictable product, our concrete can display slight variation in color and in texture. This creation will only get better with age, developing rich character and patina as it ages. Because cement cures at an asymptotic rate, all of our concrete products actually get MORE durable as the years go by!)
