Detroit "Spirit of Detroit" Trivettr_detroit_spirit
Fused glass trivets featuring your favorite city landmarks - part of an ever growing series!
This trivet features the Spirit of Detroit statue. Considered the symbol of Detroit, the 26-foot statue sculpted by Marshall Fredericks in the 1950s depicts a seated man holding a sphere in one hand and a family group in the other. The statue's plaque reads, "Through the spirit of man is manifested in the family, the noblest human relationship." I screen printed the image in green and gold enamels onto wispy white-clear glass, with a 1/4" coordinating strip of opaque green, then fused to about 1400 degrees in a kiln.
It is silkscreened, kiln formed glass, 6" square and has rubber bumpons on the bottom to protect your surfaces. This particular design is made-to-order, please allow 1-3 weeks to make and ship, and is part of a series and has other matching housewares!
Trivets will handle very warm dishes, they also make great accent/art pieces - use a plate holder or picture ledge and attach it to your wall or prop it up in a window when you're not using it. While it is dishwasher safe (we like the china/light cycle), we recommend hand washing.
