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.

Beautiful!

Comments about UncommonGoods Agate Cheese Sets:

I was a bit nervous about ordering this as there are such wide varieties in pattern and color, but overall I was pleased with what I received - it's more blue violet tones and I was hoping for more purple to lavender shades, but it's beautiful and the friend who received it as a gift was absolutely thrilled with it. One thing that's confusing about ordering is that it says "set of 2", but I didn't receive two cheese platters. I rethought it and figured that must refer to the cheese knife that's included, however the picture is deceiving as it shows 2 agate cheese plates.

A very sweet gift, but pretty small for a cheese plate. The plate is beautiful but the knife probably leaves something to be desired.

Comments about UncommonGoods Agate Cheese Sets:

this piece was a gift. but I look forward to seeing it in use at one my friends next entertaining events!
it was a colorful plate with a smooth surface, irregular unfinished edges adding to the natural style. The natural imperfections make it one of a kind! reviews indicated it was small,( for a larger feast maybe) , but it is certainly a useable serving plate that with a unique cheese or spread served on it will stand out even more when blended into an intimate gathering where petite plates are appropriate.
the plum color is more of a lovely intense violet.

                I gave this as a gift to my very good friend who loves to host parties for every reason. She is tough to shop for, but once I saw this plate, I knew her gift. She loved it.

                  This was very small. I was disappointed given the price that it was so small and therefore not practical. It is beautiful and I appreciate the aesthetic qualities. However, for the price it is not satisfactory. I only received one "platter" and a cheese knife. It would only hold a small wedge of cheese. I will now have to supplement this gift with something else because it does not appear to be enough. The price was quite high given what it is. I am not satisfied, however, I will not return it due to time pressure at the holidays. I will simply have to spend more than I had hope to add to the gift.
