All trivets begin as an idea shared among a very small group. The theme is translated into Pennsylvania Dutch and a picture is drawn.

The pattern is made and cast at a local foundary. The trivet is then hand-painted by a single local artist. She will paint about 400 trivets during the summer.

The idea on paper becomes a finished product.

Across the street from us was the foundary where we got our castings. They were named Emmaus Foundary and Machine. They also had trivets with the efm initials and they made different trivets. So, it may be possible to find some efm trivets that are not ours.
