The Artisan Process of Creating our Ceramic Coasters.
Each ceramic trivet / coaster goes through double high kiln-fire process. The 1st bake allows the raw clay to dry and harden before it is hand-painted with Lead Free paint. The 2nd bake is done in high-fire kiln with protective glaze finish. The Glossy protective Glaze coat that is baked on in a high-fire kiln where temperatures reach 1200* - 1500*F. Relief Style Painting, this is an artisan technique that gives the pattern a unique textured appearance. Each pattern may vary slightly, these coasters are 100% hand-painted by fair trade artisans. This Ceramic is lead free and contains lead free paint and is kiln fired with a glossy durable finish safe for outdoor use and display, also safe to be used as a trivet for extremely hot pans and cookware.
