There are two dish versions in the HOUSE BY THE SEA collection. This is one of them. It is a “non-directional dish” in a beautiful triangle shape forming beautiful patterns when you put several together.
The platters from the cooperation between Shona Art sculptors in Chitungwiza Arts Centre in Zimbabwe and Danish Fairtrade Designers can be used for a rustic serving of cheese and fruit.The slightly soft African stone, patinated beautifully, will get even more patinated in use – or the surface can be sealed with a good vegetable oil. A wooden knife is recommend for soft cheeses.

The beautiful and harmonious Egg Bowls are available in four sizes. The bowls outside surface is inspired by the avocado peel. The large bowls are beautiful for salads or side dishes. The small bowls can be used for snacks, small fruits or a simple flower head from the garden, or to store your jewellery overnight on the table. Though just as important for Fairtrade Designers and the sculptors in Chitungwiza Arts Centre in Zimbabwe, the bowls can be left blank and simply act as a small sculpture on the table.
