Great Trivet, but Does Not Secure the Tile In Place
Comments about Aftosa Black Iron Trivet Frame:
I love the trivet - it is exactly what I was looking for. I have a single tile of a painted handprint of my daughter's hand when she was five years old. I had wanted to preserve it and the trivet seemed functional and a good way to show off my sentimentality. However, the tile just sits in the trivet, but does not secure the tile in place. The tile can easily fall out and break. I had wanted also to hang it on the wall when not in use, but now I'm going to have to glue it on the back somehow. I was a little disappointed, as the photo online made it look like the tile could be secured inside the trivet. The price was good, so that is a plus.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

arrived on time and just as described -- it's great!
I was surprised at how nice this is. I glued a ceramic tile, using appropriate craft glue, to this, having centered the tile with cardboard spacers at the corners. I left it with a weight on it for a couple of days until it was really secure and then mounted it on a fence outside. It looks very nice--not cheap at all.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Inexpensive Way to Finish a Tile
By Duff Dill
from Mount Saint Mary Academy, Watchung, NJ
Every year, I have my mixed media classes paint a 6"x 6" tile with the Porclaine vitreous paints. Without a frame or holder, a tile is not so useful. But for 5 extra dollars, we glue the iron trivet holder on and the tile is useful as a trivet or can be hung with a little wire added to the supports on the back. I love the art Deco look of it.
Trivet frames-- pretty cool!

Trivet Makes a Difference to a Tile
By duff the Dilly
from Watchung , NJ
In my art classes, I have the students painting patterned designs within their initials on ceramic tiles. They enjoy this project very much but in the end the tile needs some sort of frame to support it and make it useful. The trivet frame elevates it from the table and also adds a linear design element that really makes it look complete and special. Parents love getting them instead of another thing to go on the wall. I have been using them for years and the price is perfect.

Strong good for tile trivets
Love these trivets!
By New Orleans Artist
from New Orleans, LA
I have sublimated tiles printed of some of my paintings and use the tiles as inserts in the trivet. Love the look, especially because I am a New Orleans artist and the iron scroll work is perfect. I think the look of this trivet is so much more updated that the wooden ones, whichever image you may use. I was concerned about how I would attach the tiles to the trivet so that it was permanent, heat resistant, and waterproof, but I found an adhesive online that does all that - and it is made for attaching ceramic and metal. Works like a dream. You'll end up with approximately 1/8th inch space between the tile and the trivet, so I made a 'spacer' to use for positioning. The trivet can be used on a counter or hung on the wall. Love the finished product and so do customers. With Blick's pricing and great shipping deals, it's a winner for me.

these trivet frames are absolutely beautiful and solid. Perfect for the hand painted German tiles. I used some hot glue to hold them in place and hung them on my wall. Love them. Great value
