Coasters are here! And just in time for the holidays.

coasters 050

A handmade coaster with original Artwork by April Alayne available just in time for the holidays!

This coaster is handmade by April herself and by hired local crafters in her neighborhood.
Each coaster is carefully put together with love and care! And each coaster purchased helps an independent artist be employed for the season.

These ceramic coasters are 4.5 X 4.5 inches and sealed with a protective coating. The backs are hand cut soft 100% black polyester felt and provide a cushion and non scratch backing to protect your table tops.

These coasters make a wonderful gift and recommended in sets of 4! You can have a nautical theme, a beard theme, a woodland theme or simply pick your favorites for you or family and friends. They make an interesting conversation piece and a unique collection for your home.

Limited supply!

Available in my Etsy shop!

Tales of the Wild

Tales of the wild

This is a commissioned piece I have completed for a delightful company in Vancouver.

Tales of the Wild

A company I have worked with in the past.

Their store is about as wonderful and charming as the family behind it. Vancouver 001

After completing the above piece they asked me to create something for their Woodsman natural product line and I happily agreed.
