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.

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.
