Ear was inspired by whole animal butchers who came for a studio visit. This small plate features a soft shino speckled glaze that changes on each piece due to the nature of firing, and has a curved bottom that balances perfectly, elevating your food off the table, reaching for the customer. The magical thing about ear is how perfectly your thumb fits perfectly into the crook of the ear for service. Ear isn’t explicit- it hints at its origin: a real pig ear- and would be the perfect foil for small-medium plates, sides or starters. But it would be an ironic twist for some aubergine and greens.
Ear is made to order, production time is 8-10 weeks.
