If your taste in design favors fine craftsmanship, sleek geometric forms, and a subtle touch of playfulness, then your ship has come in. These serving platters from designer Daniel Michalik were inspired by the ships he sees passing on the busy waterways near his home. Their form alludes to these these big, commercial vessels, yet is sophisticated enough to feel like sculptural works of art. Crafted from Northeastern American hardwoods, the vessels can be used for serving food, holding desktop essentials, or left on display as decorative accents.
The Carrier is made from beechwood, and has a larger surface, perfect for offering bread or crudité. The smaller Cargo Ship is crafted from white oak, and hauls glass jars for condiments or even tealight candles. Each has a large cork, representing the bridge of the ship, which can be removed to reveal "contraband" hidden underneath--toothpicks, a piece of candy, or even a secret message. As a finish, they are rubbed down with salad bowl oil. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.
