Better With Age

Serve artisanal cheeses on an aged surface that is as pleasing to the eye as your choice wedges, slices, and spreadables are to the palate. Formed when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava, gorgeous agate is an exceptionally unique and beautiful material that has prompted centuries of cultural intrigue. The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks all held the belief that agate possessed the power to protect its owners from evil and danger, and that it also produced delightful dreams. Like the eruption responsible for eventual formation, each of these organic oval-shaped plates contains spectacular bursts of color and microcosmic mineral explosions for stunning service.

Agate hand-polished by artisans in Brazil. Assembled by Anna Rabinowicz and her team in Long Island, New York.

“Being a designer means looking closely at the world around us for inspiration and realizing that the things around us are really magical.”

A fragment of a shell, a colorful stone, a peculiar gourd—Anna Rabinowicz's creative process often begins with objects found on her trips to Brazil. "These pieces sit on my desk for weeks, sometimes months, while I study them and think about what they might become. Then I begin to sketch and build models; each comes to life as inspiration for a new piece," she says.

After studying Industrial Design at the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, Anna received her masters degree in Design and Engineering from Stanford University. Her design company explores the use of natural, traditional materials and their juxtaposition with high-tech manufacturing techniques.

Comments about UncommonGoods Agate Cheese Sets:

I bought this to go with a gift of the agate coasters. When I arrived at my host's and saw it, they really did not match as well as the picture suggested. It was mostly solid purple with very little if any clear or white and it ws much much smaller than I envisioned as it was only a bit bigger than the coaster. Just not as nice of a gift as it could have been if it was more like the coasters but bigger.

I loved the vibrant color. Will make a great center piece for a small party. Wish the "platter" was larger.

            This was gorgeous! I really liked the look of it - very bright in color, finish was great; just lovely. Would have made a great wedding gift for my daughter who loves rocks but it was way too small. I was hoping it would have been at least the size of a luncheon plate. It was more the size of a dessert plate. In my head it was just too small for me to give as a gift so unfortunately I had to send it back.

            Service was great and the item came packaged perfectly safe.

            I was disappointed in the size of the "platter". But on the bright side, Uncommon Goods was very responsive and sent me the postage to return the product.

                    This cheese/server set is just lovely. Though it was a bit smaller and thinner than I expected, the agate is colorful and bright. It is an eyecatching piece, sure to garnish compliments when it is used. I love to give and receive items that aren't going to be found in every other person's home. This is a truly unique gift - one that I am giving, but wouldn't mind receiving either!
