The ginkgo tree, more than any other living creature, best represents the strength of a species and how it can endure almost everything on our planet. This set of hand-carved green slate stone coasters is meant to honour and serve as a reminder of the wonders of nature.
Four leaves in various positions, designed and hand carved on a disk shape of natural slate stone with a brushed surface. The back is cork padded to protect furniture, and the edges are smooth, sanded, and signed. 0.3″ thick, 3.75″ in diameter, and the four components weigh between 1.2 and 1.3 kg.
Custom designs, family or business logos, and advertising presents are always welcome.
The ginkgo tree is still alive and well after the Hiroshima atomic bombing.
We began cutting and carving stone coasters in 2013, with the intent to show our fellow stone lovers different specimens by color and shape.
However, a few experiments taught us that, any type of stone is not suitable for the purpose.
We had to rule out marble, granite because of the slippery surface, limestone because it absorbs the stain, Travertine for its air pockets, and so on.
Finally one stone type, Slate passed all the tests, and now we offer only these coasters in black and green colors.
The designs are fantasy creations, ancient symbols with a little unique touch, and of course, Canada-related nature and cultural motives.
We also offer custom-carved sets, with your unique design, without any extra charge.
