Steel & Cork Coasters

A one-of-a-kind set of coasters designed and fabricated by Alyssa Bogdan of The Rust Shack. A graduate of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, Alyssa is a talented metalsmith and all-around versatile artisan who aims to bridge the gap between "ones relation to self and the objects allowed to become part of who we are." This set of four coasters consists of steel bases, with removable steel fasteners that secure a piece of cork to the top. The cork could be replaced when needed, and the position of the fasteners can be adjusted.
