These classically elegant, perfectly simple, exquisite handmade porcelain plates are practically perfect in every way. Their luminous soft-white palette (the all-natural hue of the porcelain clay itself) and graceful, understated form makes them equally at home among crystal goblets and filet mignon as next to humble homespun linen and fresh baked bread. Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, these plates are fully finished with an extremely hard, high-gloss clear glaze. The 6" size is ideal for croissant, cake, and petit dejeuner.
About John Julian: Hand thrown, fettled (a word we love-it's when a piece of porcelain is smooth finished by hand using a knife and a sponge before going into the kiln), glazed, and fired at exceptionally high temperatures, John Julian's simple, beautiful porcelain is lovingly made to last in a small workshop in Wiltshire, England. Designed by artist + sculptor Julian Sainsbury, these silhouettes recall the classic elegant-workmanlike shapes that have been gracing English kitchens and tables for hundreds of years. Contrary to popular belief, porcelain is not fussy. Go ahead and put it in the dishwasher or pop it in the microwave. Rejoice!
