DIY: Handmade Tiles as Trivets

One day before we started the renovation of the Laboratory, we found ourselves wandering around Mahnattan’s unofficial tile district in Chelsea and Flat Iron; we were looking for bathroom tiles, both for the floor and shower. A display of handmade tiles on West 22nd Street drew us into the store. We were struck by how moderne the many of the  rustic designs were. The black spiral reminded us of Alexander Calder.

Ahh, we thought, what wonderful trivets they would make.

They were about 6 inches square, big enough to hold a hot pot.

We’d stick soft chair sliders on the underside to keep them from scratching the table.
