BLUE MOSAIC COASTERS AND KNIFE RESTS BY IMAGES D'ORIENT
From Lebanese designer Peggy Raphael Dabar for Images d'Orient, these heat resistant coasters keep your counter or table surfaces safe while adding an intriguing accent. The mosaic is a meticulous and demanding art where the layout prototypes were jealously preserved and transmitted from the "maalem" - the master or profesor - to his apprentice. These cut stones, called zelliges, follow an aesthetic order and a harmonious negative-positive play, leaving the audience in perpetual meditation. These coasters are waterproof, heat resistant and dishwasher safe. It is also handmade with small variations, characteristic to its uniqueness.
Coasters are sold as a set of 6, while the knife rests are sold as a set of 4.
