STOP! DOT Your Tabletop with Coasters
It is amazing to think of all the traffics signs that have been crashed into or worn out. At least we can have peace of mind that they can now be on our table serving as snazzy eco coasters. These coasters are made by Boris Bally, a metalsmith whose work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Art and Design, New York, New York; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England; the Mint Museum, Charlotte, and North Carolina to name a few.
These great pieces would make a fun gift for a man or woman. They are made from re-used metal traffic signs which are hand-pressed, formed and finished. Each set is different. Eco-Artware.com is a great site for finding recycled, reused, and natural gifts.
