The Coaster Works: 100% Absorbent Coasters -- Mimbres
Our ceramic coasters are 100% absorbent and soak up condensation before it can reach your furniture, just like a clay flower pot absorbs water ● We have seven coaster collections: Anasazi, Art Deco, Basket, Katagami, Mimbres, Pueblo, and Victorian ● Each collection is available in blue, green, and black ● Each collection has four different designs ● One display stand is included with every set of four coasters ● All of our products are handmade at our studio in Sedalia, MO, USA
|Production Method||Our terra-cotta coasters are pressed out one at a time from red clay and trimmed by hand on a potter's wheel. Then, we apply layers of ceramic underglaze for gorgeous, permanent color. A waterproof cork adheres to the back of each coaster, making it safe for use on every surface. These are durable coasters that will last lifetimes.|

We have some "thirstystone" brand coasters for the house and they just have never met my expectations. These "Coaster Works" are MUCH better!
I have a background in ceramics, so I knew these terra cotta coasters would be really, truly absorbent - just like the description says, you can compare them to a terra cotta pot, which is very porous and actually drinks up liquid. Plus, I love the color scheme and traditional Mimbres-style decoration. These are so beautiful! Not only are they functional coasters, but they are striking art objects to have around the house, and people who see them comment on how pretty they are.
They are a nice, large coaster size, about 4" across, and thin, less than 1/2". The colored areas of the coaster are deeply carved and I would presume this would help trap heavy condensation better than a flat-surfaced coaster. There is a cork backing that covers the ENTIRE bottom of the coaster. Although they are handmade, the coasters are nice and and flat and don't rock around. The stand is simple and unobtrusive, with four cork feet.
These are really great coasters and beautiful to boot. I'm looking forward to buying another set to give as gifts. :-)
