Sedimentation Coasters

RCA grad and all around incredible designer, Hilda Hellström uses layers of pigmented Jesmonite (a non-toxic plaster) to create coasters that look and feel like stone. She created this beautiful cork-backed, water-safe and heat-resistent series of coasters for Site Unseen that look like beautiful green marble or stone but are actually a lightweight man-made alternative. I love any product that encourages me to drink more (I’m terrible at remembering to drink water) so I love the idea of investing in a set of these so I’m always tempted to have a glass of water resting on them. Hilda is selling sets of these Sedimentation Coasters at Site Unseen’s online shop right here.


  1. Fun retro vibe to these! I need a nice martini to set on one of these!

    At $40/coaster, I’m not sure I’d be setting *anything* on them!

    Love these! Although, it’s Sight Unseen, not Site Unseen :)

    Ohhhh. These are great! I love the image on her site of the vase that is emerging from a big block of this layered material. It’s a beautiful piece with an interesting concept.
