Futagami Brass Kobo Radiance Coaster - 4.5''

Availability: In stock (1)
A beautiful, radiant, icon-object worthy of sun-salutation when left to its own devices on your daily surfaces, as well the perfect spot for your sweaty drink when need arises. An above-average coaster.

About the line: Founded in 1897, Futagami began producing beautiful brass altar fittings for Japanese Buddhist monasteries and the zen tradition continues today. Hand smelted, poured, finished, filed, and polished in the Toyama prefecture, these exceptionally elegant brass pieces are a pleasure to hold and use. The labor-intensive process, which includes molding into layers of fine-silted earth, is designed to highlight the distinctive "ihada" finish, a subtly rough surface texture that brilliantly plays up the brass' natural tendency towards use-based patina. Use these, love them, and watch them get better with age.

Lillian owns + loves these things!
Fancy! These have the beautiful sand-cast texture and catch the light beautifully when they're used as a coaster. I use it as a base for pillar candles and it's nice to have something low-profile. There is a nice silicone ring on the bottom to prevent sliding and protect your table surface too!
