STOP! DOT Your Tabletop with Coasters

traffic-sign-coasters.jpgIt 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. is a great site for finding recycled, reused, and natural gifts.

Early experiences of my native New England state of Connecticut influenced my love of weathered materials on the shore in addition to coastal birds walking amidst thin brushes of seaweed and sticks. In addition, the diversity of New York City, being only an hour away from home, opened my eyes to a larger scale of proportions and grandeur. I have a loving appreciation for nature's intricate beauty combined with modern urban style. I see the world as organic and bright.
