Trivets for Wall Decor and the Kitchen with Northwest Coast Designs
Our beautiful trivets are made from materials such as cork, ceramic and recycled glass. Trivets with Indigenous Designs of the Northwest Coast make the perfect choice as practical accessories for your kitchen and as decorative accents for your home. They also make lovely gift ideas.
Indigenous Symbols of Significance
We’re particularly fond of these unique recycled glass trivets, finished in a warm rosewood color. Each is designed and made in Canada. Designs feature animals from the Pacific Northwest and cultural symbols of the Indigenous peoples of North America.
The newest Indigenous Northwest Coast designs featuring culturally significant symbols like the Killer Whale and The Raven and Moon in rich rosewood color and eco-friendly recycled glass designs, make them the perfect home accent and also a great gift idea.
The Killer Whale Trivet, for example, shows the popular marine mammal as depicted by Tsimshian artist Bill Helin. The Killer Whale, also known as Orca, is said to protect those who travel away from home and to lead them back when the time comes. Bill is a painter, woodcarver and illustrator who uses his art to pass on the stories of his ancestors and to share the history of the Tsimshian nation.
And the Raven and Moon Trivet features the Raven, who is believed to be the keeper of secrets and a helper to the creator. One story tells how the Raven stole the sun, moon and stars from an old chief, placing them in the sky for everyone to enjoy. The design on this decorative glass trivet was created by Gitxsan artist Karen Francis, who produces artwork using a variety of mediums. Her aim is to increase the cultural understanding and acceptance of contemporary native art.
Practical and Beautiful
These recycled glass trivets aren’t simply beautiful, they’re also very practical. They are heat resistant to 340°F, so they can easily cope with a boiling pot or casserole dish straight from the oven. The larger round or square trivets measure between 7-8 inches in diameter (or square), making them perfect to protect your table from hot dishes. Alternatively the 3¾ inch square trivets with protective feet are ideal as beverage coasters to prevent damage to your furniture.
