35,00 €

This handmade tile with a locally sourced cork base serves as the perfect homage to Portuguese iconography. The traditional deep blue tones of the azulejo complement the warm rich earthy tones of the cork frame. The trivet would be a beautiful addition to any dinner service set, as it is truly a one-of-a-kind piece.

The tile itself, depicts a striking study done in our popular bold cobalt shade. The details and outlines are painted in precise thin black linework, juxtaposing the tile’s bold composition and thoughtful mark making.
