We decided to make the plates in this collection from a bright white stoneware clay body. We glazed the Dinner Plate in deep blue that is reminiscent of the ocean floor, and glazed the Appetizer Plate in bright white with a rutile blue edge. The bowls and vessels are made from a bright white translucent porcelain clay body. The Soup Bowl is glazed the same as the Dinner Plate, and the Salad Bowl is bright white with a rutile blue edge. We designed the plates in the collection with generous flat areas to show off your food. Our 4-piece Place Setting features a dinner plate, appetizer plate, bread & butter plate, and soup bowl. Bowls are created to be light, yet durable; and the platters and plates have a much heavier presence. We created a yin/yang pairing that will surprise and delight you and your guests. We originally designed the collection in collaboration with chef Tony Esnault of Church & State for his new restaurant Spring located in downtown Los Angeles. We handmade and delivered 1,000 pieces to the restaurant. Other items in our collection include a bright white translucent porcelain Water Vessel, Sauce Vessel, and Salad Bowl. We always use non-toxic, lead-free glaze and clay in all of our products and high-fire each piece to maturity. Please allow 3-5 weeks for delivery.
