We love this kiln formed glass coaster. With its likeness of Vice President Kamala Harris screen printed with black enamel onto wispy clear-white glass, it was fused in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. The coaster has clear bumpers on the bottom to protect your surfaces. A great addition to your happy hour accessories, it is a wonderful memento of our first female vice president.
A first generation American born to immigrant, activist parents, Kamala Harris is a trailblazer. She is the first woman, the first Black American, and the first South Asian American to be elected as Vice President of the United States, the second-highest leadership position in our nation’s government. Throughout her distinguished career and lifetime of public service, these pioneering firsts were also the case with the offices she held as the District Attorney of San Francisco, the Attorney General of California and as a United States Senator.
While she is guided by the words she spoke the first time she stood up in court: “Kamala Harris, for the people”, the Vice President is also reminded of her great responsibility, with these words from her mother, who was also an inspiring woman: “Kamala, you may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last.”
