Take Nothing for Granite

There's a downside to enjoying a cold beverage: every time you want to take a sip, you have to detach that flimsy coaster that's stuck to the bottom your glass. It's no wonder folks would rather put up with coffee table rings and mix-ups than bother keeping a set at home. It's about time coasters muscled-up. These no-nonsense, boldly designed coasters are handmade and assembled from solid, salvaged granite slabs and recycled rubber, making them the kind of sleek and sturdy piece anyone would be happy to slide beneath their favorite drink. Bottoms up! Handmade in New Hampshire. Sold as a set of four coasters.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Arra David and Anne Johnson

Arra David and Anne Johnson are longtime New England rockhounds. Their love for Mother Nature's artwork in stone and hardwood inspires them to handcraft functional creations that bring the outdoors in. They craft each piece with attention to detail, quality, and respect for nature.

Working with stone calls for custom fixtures and techniques. Arra is an engineer and inventor, and he says it's part of his "normal care and feeding" to put him in the workshop and let him make new products and tools.

Anne is an artist with a keen eye for balance and harmony. She blends the endless varieties of nature's materials into pieces that decorate homes and will keep generations connected to their environment.

To keep our beaches and forests as they are, Anne and Arra "plant" a new quarry stone in the water to replace each one gathered, and they plant ten times the number of trees harvested for their work. collection
