Batter Up

In his quest to create the perfect plate for devouring pancakes, designer Jon Wye broke down the elements of what makes a pillowy stack so comforting. After a lifelong love affair with breakfast, Wye pin-pointed the crux of satisfaction: syrup. Designed with a raised edge that gently slopes the plate toward the diner and an ingenious reservoir for pooling loose syrup, this plate was made for slicing, dipping and delighting in each bite of pancake goodness. But the best part? This plate enhances any saucy dish down to the last drop. Made in Arizona. Sold as a set of 2 plates.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Jon Wye

Designer Jon Wye is quick to point out that his background is not in art. Sure he's always been creative--as a child, he used to make his own versions of the devices illustrated in The Way Things Work--but it wasn't until he was an adult that, on a whim, he started creating handmade pewter belt buckles and got hooked. He collaborates with a collective of artists and designers, but still likes to approach projects with an unusual, problem-solving perspective.

Case in point: pancakes. Wye is something of a diehard, pancake aficionado. Once, after a bad breakup, he ate made-from-scratch pancakes at least once a day for six months. Over time he perfected his own recipe, and discovered a way to keep them from becoming a syrupy mess by developing a sloped-surface plate.
