This woodfired textured platter with a small porcelain dipping bowl was inspired by the needs of dining. Often the first thing to start a memorable meal is something to share – snacks or bread – that is presented to the table to begin the ceremony of eating. Iona Crawford Topp looked to the local coastline along which she walks every day, and was inspired by the contrasts between rough textured stones and fine, smooth shells with movement in everything. These observations were the starting point to design this piece.
