A versatile saucer, dessert dish or even trinket tray, the Mino-Yaki Soil Plate is all about the beauty of simple details. Designed by Angle and made in Gifu, home to one of Japan's oldest artistic pottery industries, each plate features a circular pool of rustic coloured glaze and a matching line trimming its edge. The unglazed border reveals the fine speckling of raw clay, a detail inspired by the warm aesthetics of traditional, Japanese earthenware. See the Mino-Yaki Soil Mugs and the Mino-Yaki Pottery Spoons to complete a homey but elegant table setting.
Angle work with various pottery manufacturers in Japan — from fine porcelain to earthenware — to create contemporary designs using traditional and local Japanese techniques. They focus on producing tableware to suit modern lifestyles, while retaining the familiarity of materials, provenance and history of artisanship. As their name suggests, they like to view ceramics from all angles and perspectives.
