Three Legs of Mann Coaster
The Three Legs of Man is iconic with the beautiful Isle of Man as it has been featured on the official flag of our little Isle since 1932 and will remind anyone who is a true Manxie or a honorary one of their true home!
The flag of Mann (or in Manx - brattagh Vannin) features a triskelion on a red background and was originally taken from the Manx coat of arms.
These lovely coasters are all handmade on the Isle of Man and everyone is unique!
For each coaster I hand cut the triskelion from thin sheets of copper foil and then encase them in clear Bullseye glass.
Copper is a fantastic material to work with as it is a surprise what colour it will turn during in the kiln as during it firing the copper oxidises. Oxidation occurs in the kiln in the time before the sheets of glass begin to fuse and once the edges of the glass have fused, the process stops. The areas that oxidise the most turn a dark turquoise and the areas with less oxidation turn red.
Although they are made from glass, these coasters are very durable and with the addition of rubber bumpon feet on the underside of the coasters they are also non slip.
Each of these coasters is sold individually.
Each coaster measures 10cm square and 0.5cm deep (not including the feet)
Please be aware that due the handcrafted nature of my work each piece that I make is slightly different (so completely unique for you!) So the piece that you will receive will not be identical to the one pictured in this listing as shape and arrangement of colours may vary slightly.
