I moved to Portland in 2011 and fell in love. I started documenting that love via photography.
In a surprisingly, short period of time, my laptop contained hundreds of photos I wanted to share. I have always been a fan of interesting
coasters and have collected quite a few from different cities I've
visited. They are great conversation starters and memory generators.
With a great deal of support and encouragement, I decided to give it a go.
After months of research, trial and error; experimenting with
different products, applications, methods, I have come up with
the technique I
Each signed photograph is matched with a 4x4 color tile from Pratt & Larson; an amazing local company that hand glazes and cuts their own tiles. I then finish the tops with an industrial, high grade epoxy, which makes the finish look like glass. The bottoms of the coasters are finished with a full cork pad, to protect your furniture.
The techniques I use enable
me to put out the best product I possibly can. I stand
behind my product and welcome feedback.
Every coaster I make
is done with love, passion, integrity, and a huge crush on my city and state.
hope you enjoy owning them as much as I enjoy making them for
