Milwaukee "Wisconsin Gas Building" Trivettr_milwaukee_wisconsingas
Fused glass trivets featuring your favorite city landmarks - part of an ever growing series!
This trivet features the Wisconsin Gas Building, located in downtown Milwaukee, and it's iconic weather-predicting flame. The flame, now made of glass and shaped as a natural gas flame, serves as a weather beacon. The color indicates what the next day's weather will be like - "When the flame is red, it's warm weather ahead. When the flame is gold, watch out for cold. When the flame is blue, there's no change in view. When there's agitation, expect precipitation." I printed the image in ochre and blue enamels onto dark transparent gray glass, with a 1/4" coordinating strip of transparent amber, 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.
