Made of recycled glass and heat resistant to 340ºF, these trivets withstand the heat of a boiling stock pot and will maintain their beauty over many years. The back of the trivet has been drilled to allow for easy hanging to adorn a wall. In addition, the trivet has protective felt dots on the back to prevent them from scratching fine surfaces.
Salmon is a symbol of abundance, wealth and prosperity because it is the primary food source for Northwest Coastal people, representing the ability to provide for your family. Salmons are Supernatural beings who give up their life to feed our people. We hold them in high esteem and honour their return every year. Out of respect, ceremonies are often held by the Northwest Coast people to celebrate the return of the Salmon to their traditional spawning grounds.
