Cold Cut Coasters

Colorful coasters that are made to look like “ham hock” cold cut slices, is a design delicacy that will probably not appeal to everyone, but its’ mind boggling uniqueness will certainly make you look and talk about it.

The collaborative project work of Brooklyn-based designers Chen Chen and Kai Tsien-Williams, Cold Cut Coasters are made using found materials such as bone, clay, board game pieces, netting, and ropes. The compressed materials are held together with epoxy and resin, and shaped into a “ham hock” form. The “ham hock” is coated with wax, and sliced into unique cross sections. Wow!
