The most noticeable characteristics are the fantastic markings on the surface of the bowl, as well as the flowing open shape. The markings are naturally occurring and make each plate unique. The perfect, thin walls make them easy to hold and beautiful on the eye, definitely a vessel to cherish. The rim is curved to help catch food as you serve.

This diversely used natural plate is not only for serving meals but also it is a great complement for any kitchen or living-room. Each plate comes in a presentation box and is a beautiful gift. Available in two sizes.

Please note that each plate is individual and has distinct markings due to the grain of the wood and because it is a handmade product.
