Each maple leaf is picked with care in the fall, so every coaster will be different and unique. The artist from Fenelon Falls starts picking in the Kawarthas, Muskoka and Algonquin Park areas, then work their way south to Lake Ontario. The maple leaf is then placed onto the hand cut slate or marble and a finish is applied to both protect and bring out the beauty in the leaf and the stone. The black coaster are slate from Sudbury and the marble is from Madoc. So truly a local gift.
