A characterful Trivet created with used horseshoes for hot pots, kettles and containers. Add an equestrian twist to your kitchen!
Our standard size for these will be 4cm in height and 24cm at widest point though this may vary slightly according to the nature of used shoes.
The Trivet is sturdy and well balanced. Please always use suitably sized pots for it. Neither too large so they could fall off the edge or so small they could fall through the shoes.
From Your Own Shoes
It is possible to have these made from your own shoes too. For this design we’d require three front shoes, of the same shape and size. Please bear in mind that the final size of the trivet will be a reflection of the size of your shoes. Details on where to send your shoes to will arrive in your email confirmation of your order, please check your spam folders for these. Or just click the ‘delivery’ tab up there for further info.
Clean & Care
Each Horseshoe is heated to a high temperature in the forge before cleaning which kills any nasties. They are then cleaned and polished and sealed in a clear lacquer to protect from rust. However we do recommend keeping your trivet dry and only wiping with a soft cloth to clean.
The Celtic Triskele
The celtic style and influence is much loved by us here at HH HQ and we were delighted to create this trivet in the style of a Celtic Spiral. The shoes join in a centre point with each horseshoe ‘arm’ sprialing out from the centre. The meaning of the Triskele varies widely but without doubt the triple aspect plays a part which could symbolise many things. Mind, body, spirit. Maiden, mother, crone. Life, death, rebirth.
