It's To Bee
Possessing a sweet aesthetic that only Mother Nature herself could produce, the classic honeycomb emerges from the hive and occupies the outer edges of this porcelain place setting. Dana Brandwein Oates and her team utilize an authentic hive starter donated by a local beekeeper to decorate their hand-thrown and cut slabs of creamy porcelain. The intricate impressions are then rubbed with a metallic, ochre glaze and wiped to soften the edges of the honeycomb's distinct hexagonal grid. Like the bees who so carefully formed the inspiration for these pieces, the presence of the meticulous makers can be felt in the beautiful execution of each piece. Abuzz with handcrafted detail, these pieces provide an artful foundation for the casual snack or an elegant dinner fit for a queen. Handmade in Connecticut.
