agate cheese setsby Anna Rabinowicz $78.00
- the story
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.
Sets available: Azure Platter and Spreader; Eggplant Platter and Spreader; or Eggplant Platter and Smoke Spreader.
Agate hand-polished by artisans in Brazil. Assembled by Anna Rabinowicz and her team in Long Island, New York.
