Have You Seen This?

Thanksgiving used to mark the beginning of the holiday season but more and more we seem to slide into the festivities at Halloween.  For as much as we enjoy the trick-or-treating kiddies, we also love to dress up ourselves and entertain friends.  Whether we're serving a pumpkin martini (I made that up) or hot apple cider, we still want to slip something under our guests' drinks before they set them down on our carefully culled, mid-century modern coffee table.  Forget about those dorky paper, ghostly cocktail napkins.  Slip one of these silvery webbed coasters under their glass.

Made with hand cut and embossed, white stoneware clay these coasters are made by Noelle at her Moonfire Pottery studio in Saugarties, New York.  Dedicated to making functional pottery, Noelle certainly doesn't leave out the fun in functional.
