    Comments about SANDBLASTED GLASS COASTERS - SET OF 4:

    I received these coasters as a birthday present and absolutely love them. The colors are bold and vibrant, and the sandblasting gives them such a unique texture. The overall design is very sturdy, so I can breathe easily knowing that when my cat inevitably (edit: purposefully) knocks these particular coasters off of whatever surface they're resting on, they are less likely to break.

    Stylish, functional, and on sale! Can't go wrong with these.

    Who knew that sandblasting could create such lovely, usable art? Dylan and Amy Engler's colorful coasters are kiln-formed then sandblasted to create a unique look and feel. Would these handmade glass coasters look great on your table?

    I agree with Jolayne. When I first saw this I thought, "Wow, Uncommon Goods is selling makeup?" Also, I thought coasters were supposed to absorb condensation. Class doesn't absorb and therefore the water will just run off the coaster which completely defeats the purpose.

    I like the looks, but I would worry about condensation from the with your drink in it and spilling down to the coasters. In my house, that is a glass just waiting to slip and end up on the carpet. But I really like them!

    I really love the idea and they are really great to look at for many different decors but $10 each for a coaster is a little absurd for something that is just going to catch the water off the edge of your glass, right?

    glass coasters aren't functional and I don't understand why anyone makes them or uses them. The water gathering from condensation runs right off of the glass surface and onto the table you are trying to protect.

    These look like makeup cases. Looks like eye shadow.

    Agree with others that glass coasters will just move the water, not soak it up!

    Way too pricey for little plastic coasters!

    Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

    Hi, Sarah. These coasters are actually handmade glass. They bold bands of color are fused to the back background using a kiln, then they are sandblasted to create a unique surface texture. The price factors in the cost of the materials and the time it takes Dylan and Amy Engler to create each piece. Does that change your vote?

    The surface texture from the sandblasting would catch moisture, but I agree that they're pricey

    They're going to stick to the glass with condensation. Pretty, but not very functional.

    Thought it was eye shadow.

    Attractive, but pricey. Also, if ear glass coasters would sweat profusely in humid conditions.

    Expensive for a set of 4 coasters

    Amanda

    When you pick the drink up, a glass coaster can stick for a minute (due to condensation) then fall to the floor. If it's glass, it's likely to break!

    A tad pricy for coaster, but I like the style and that they're handmade in Ohio.

    Coasters need to soak up moisture, not collect it and roll it off the side to ruin your furniture.

    Very pretty, but glass coasters aren't the best since they dont absorb anything. The rounded look to the edge even looks like it might drip off if there was enough. So for $40 it's just too much for little return besides being pretty.

    nice colors, priced about right.

    Krista

    I agree with the eyehshadow comments and the comments about glss not absorbing the condensation. Also, I like things that match and would prefer a set that has all the same colors.

    Cool to look at, but I think $10 per coaster is way too expensive. I work in a store that sells coasters and people don't buy coasters that don't absorb condensation.

    Cute but can't imagine that it would be very absorbing.

    I am a little worried whether these will stick to the glasses or allow water to pool and run off....love that it is made here in OH.

    These coasters will not absorb any of the liquid drippings of the drink glass. Might as well use nothing to absorb, or use napkins.

    Very cool but a bit pricey.

    I agree with previous comments that it looks like eyeshadow palettes. Plus, $10 for a coaster is just stupid.

    I realize they're handmade, (and quite beautiful) but I personally think $10 a piece is too much for coasters.

    Glass does not absorb and the price is high.

    Sue

    Do they absorbed condensation? Breakable, and expensive

    Cynthia

    Pretty

    Nancy

    Very different but don't think it would soak up the liquid from condensation. Would not buy because of this.

    Gina

    Very Cool. The design reminds me of the Human Rights logo for equality for all. I just hope they can absorb perspiration from a cool drink in the hot sun!
