Special Collection

In a museum gallery, you are invited to get a close-up glimpse of the wonders of art and nature. This extraordinary tray offers up its own masterpiece—a dazzling disk of brilliant, translucent agate—mounted in an exhibit-style case, and set to work serving drinks or hors d'oeuvres. Made from clear acrylic with chrome handles, this chic piece of functional art will be prized showpiece at any social gathering.

Agate is a semiprecious stone formed deep under the earth when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava. 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. Stone quarried in Brazil; tray made in China.

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.
