birds words

It’s funny — I’ve noticed that some of my favorite bird-themed design comes from Portland, birthplace of Portlandia and the phrase, “Put a Bird on It.” I spotted this beautiful hand-carved ceramic trivet at Alder & Co., one of my favorite shops in PDX. The dark brown glaze is warm and rich, and each trivet comes with a leather cord and hooks for hanging if you’d rather show it off than use it to cool hot pots. Ever since I picked up my first Lee Hanson tile back in 2006, I’ve been a fan of hanging pieces like this — they add dimension and texture to a wall without costing a ton of money. Click here to check out this trivet in detail and shop online ($195 each). xo, grace

“they add dimension and texture to a wall without costing a ton of money.”

. . . at $195 each?!? For a trivet?!?

Grace Bonney


If you’re using it like I mentioned, as wall art, $195 is not a lot for a hand-cast tile. That work takes a lot of time.
