Food52 loves food, and so do we. That's the simplest way to sum up this exciting collaboration and why it's one of my favorites to date! I design every piece of tableware with the food it'll one day serve in the forefront of my mind. Function is central to my design process. All the little details like the weight of a piece both empty and when piled high with food, the curve of the rim to properly contain the food, the glaze color and texture... it all comes back to the food and how the porcelain will work with it.
You may remember I previously designed and handmade exclusive porcelain tableware products for Food52 from 2013-2015. We had so many great hits together (read about a few of my favorites on the blog here and here) that we decided to partner up again!
This time around I designed three products destined for celebratory holiday tables. I kept the forms simple to focus on the pure, raw beauty of the porcelain clay. The undersides remain unglazed in our signature fashion, creating a non-porous surface from the high-fired porcelain. The interiors in contrast are decorated with the glossiest glaze around (our secret in-house formula) and finished with painterly splatters in real, 22k gold.
The Gold Splatter Serveware Collection debuted this week and we hope that you'll love this food-centric porcelain pottery just as much as we do!
