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.”

      My colleague loved this gift. She entertains frequently and has used it several times already. Was a bit larger than it looked in the catalog, but she assured me that makes it more useful.

          Wish the center round was a bit smaller. It holds a bit to much dip for vegetables.

                Platter is a cute design and is very thick so doubt it is easy broken. Only downside is, it is a little smaller than I expected. So at family holidays I have to keep refiling the veggies and dip
