Delicious Diagram

Thomas Both applies the principle of a Venn diagram to his cleverly captivating platter design, where two circular, glazed stoneware plates merge to form a shared serving space for the good stuff. Offer an irresistible presentation of three foods, like contrasting crudite and dip or hummus, with the main attraction at the tempting intersection. Made in Tucson, Arizona.

“Get engaged and excited about how people do things and pay attention, then work your way to a product idea you're excited about and other people love.”

Captivated by human-centered design, beautiful objects, simplicity, and details, Thomas Both’s advice for aspiring artists and designers is simple: Make stuff. “Get engaged and excited about how people do things and pay attention,” he says, “then work your way to a product idea you’re excited about and other people love.”


 After working for a few years as a mechanical engineer right out of college, Thomas felt the need to feed his right brain, and so he enrolled in design school at Stanford University and went on to teach at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. When creating his ceramic pieces, no functional detail is left untested. “I work much more as a designer now than an engineer,” he says, “but both play a part.”

          I couldn't believe my eyes! The dish I saw in the catalog was exactly what my daughter had been describing..."I wish someone made a dish that you could put the dip/salsa, whatever, and you could put veggies in one side and crackers in the other."

              I really like the size of the platter. It works well with one item in each section or it is big enough for 4 items but dip. I really like the size and the simplicity of design.

                  We both enjoyed the laugh over a functional piece in the Venn diagram design as her chosen name is Venn. She will use this time and again!!
