fused glass hotplate

This is a trivet, otherwise known as a hotplate... used for preventing your counters or tables from burning due to a hot dish or pot. The funky shape was cut and ground from a large square piece of glass. I then used rectangles of leftover glass to create the pattern. I stuck a few (more than a few) clear rubber nodes on the bottom... and it works quite well. Amazing what a bit of leftover glass and a lot of heat can create!

I'm used to seeing square trivets. I like the organic shape of this one!
