First Thought Best Thought Pair of Coasters


In stock


From The Obstruction Project September 2019

My friend Suzi Banks Baum challenged me to “take note of your first thought each day, and take action.” This was during the month of September, 2019. I was practicing immersing in very cold water that month in a swimming hole near our home. I was and still go into cold water specifically to make myself get comfortable with being physically uncomfortable. That thought was on my mind most of September, and often the first thing I thought of when I woke up: will I go in today.

I also was drawing a circular scribble in my sketchbook, a scribble of what the energy in my head felt like. I printed that scribble and the words FIRST THOUGHT, BEST THOUGHT onto a coaster.

Handset metal type and polymer plate letterpress printed onto a thick coaster, 4″ diameter.

Two coasters included in this order.
