While working as a mosaic artist I spent a lot of time analyzing different kinds of marble. Each type of natural stone is comprised of distinct patterns and colors which are formed in infinite variations. The pieces in this section are paintings using these elements and a study of what makes each marble unique. These trivets can handle pots out of the oven and can be easily wiped clean. Though not a cutting boards they are food gradesafe and could be used to display cheeses or hors d'oeuvres. Collect for use as placemats, or keep on a butcher block to rest hot pans.
