tableware in action

These are images from two separate collaborations with restaurant chefs who served food on handmade dishes.  A useable feast coincided with NCECA Philadelphia and involved the work of four potters.  Cup and plate at knife and fork was a dinner event in Spruce Pine, NC, and included three potters and a glass artist.  We worked with chef Nate Allen to make dinnerware according to his aesthetic visions for a five course tasting dinner.  The cascade plates shown were designed to offer a rim for food to trail down into the center well.
