Mogu-Kagu coaster

Mogu-Kagu coaster

These elegant coasters are handmade by Mitsugu Morita of Mogu-Kagu studios in Fukuoka, Japan. The slightly curved corner provides a graceful and whimsical characteristic, as well as making the coaster easier to grab and pick up. Crafted out of solid cherry and walnut, with an oil-based satin finish that enhances the natural color and beauty of the wood. Available from Ode to Things.
