I am GINGA, a Galaxy brass trivet. I am a poorly understood system of mysterious matter and forces but I’m here to set the record straight! When you see me at work to protect your tabletops from scorching hot cookware, you’ll understand what I’m best at.
These brass trivets are handy objects both in the kitchen and at the dinner table. They are functional while simultaneously exist as beautiful display objects while not in use. Through oxidization, its color changes over time to eventually produce a beautiful rich patina. We love how a product like this transforms with age and remains exquisite throughout all its stages.
