The tableware series 'Eccentric Plates' consists of four different, unique, handcrafted dinner plates, which are made of various materials such as ceramics, copper and brass. The tableware does not only assist our daily ritual of food consumption, but also, on the basis of different forms and materials, symbolizes the processes that happen in our body while we digest. Some effects are more extreme than others; some plates are more eccentric than others. The series as a whole evokes associations to well-known dining attributes, but also can be surprising due to their eccentric appearance.

De serie als geheel roept associaties op aan bekende dinerkenmerken, maar kan ook verrassend zijn vanwege haar excentrieke voorkomen.

The Copper plate has been created through the use of a flexible casting mold. During the process, the sheer weight of the clay shaped the mold, in turn making every design unique.
