Dinner at the Rainforest
Echoing the broad sweep of a palm leaf or mullein, this serving plate gives dinner parties a bit of rainforest-style beauty. Artisans in Thailand craft the piece using a unique process called centrifugal casting. They pour the molten elements into a leaf mold, then spin it rapidly to force the glass into tiny crevices. The result is stunning: Authentic dips and ridges to match the veins of a real leaf. An elegant gift for a housewarming or wedding, the spacious surface complements any fare, from spring rolls to an assortment of cheeses. Handmade in Thailand.
