With its clean lines and gorgeous ceramic heft, this slim and streamlined laboratory porcelain display "platter" boasts a shapeshifting utility. An artist's palette, a home for plant, candle, or tableaux of special items, a spot for burning incense, a board for serving up a mighty impressive cheese. With its ability to both conduct and insulate against temperatures, it also makes a great trivet for a hot or cold dish or for keeping on the woodstove perhaps (under a humidifier). 6" x .5"
About The Line: As with the best things, the magic of science is in the doing, the making, the testing, the tweaking, and the discovering. Hand-crafted in the Czech Republic and specifically made for scientists to the exacting specifications required for use in active laboratories, these exquisitely utilitarian porcelain pieces bring that science-magic to home "laboratories"-perfect for important experiments such as: how many pods of cardamom should be pestled to achieve peak Turkish coffee flavor intensity or what is the ideal temperature for a hot cheese dip to maximize cracker stability and delivery. The rigors of the scientific method demand that these vessels perform beautifully under pressure: they can withstand exceptionally high pH's on the acid or base spectrum, unglazed products can withstand temperatures of 2,462 degrees F, and glazed ones 1,832 F. In short, they can most definitely handle the oven, the freezer, the microwave, and the dishwasher.
