Make dining an artistic affair with thoughtfully designed handmade objects. Ryan Foote of eponymous firm R. L. Foote Design Studio creates unique and contemporary ceramic tableware based on how he imagines food and drink should be experienced, served, eaten and even played with. “Often I will take old techniques and combine them with new technologies or techniques from other fields to create new processes,” says Ryan.

#4 The minimalist

Tableware Actus Haus Ceramicware

These ceramic ware are particularly suitable for calm, morning breakfasts in the kitchen. The Spotted collection is made by Polish craftsmen Katarzyna Zaluska and Michal Zaluski. They are meant for everyday use and fired at high temperatures to ensure durability and expose black and brown spots on the surface of the clay. The dishes are glazed in glossy white on the inner parts and left raw on the outer surfaces.

#5 Handcrafted, for a soothing, quiet cup of tea

Tableware Oh Leaf Ceramicware Mugs

The Flambé Galaxy Blue Glaze series is inspired by the blueish tint in galaxy images, which is the result of heat radiation from young stars. It’s made from oh!eaf’s own glaze recipe, and like all handmade objects, each one boasts a unique texture, ensuring no two pieces are the same.
