Ceramic Plate Crystalline Opal Small
These exquisite pastel Opal plates feature a unique crystalline glaze, achieved by growing crystals in the molten glaze under the extreme heat and atmosphere of the kiln. Each glaze is a unique recipe mixed up from up to 10 different minerals that reveal their vibrant colours in the firing.
A lot of testing and refinement is involved while creating the recipes to make sure the glaze shows off its best qualities. Nevertheless, each piece still takes its own identity in the firing and is completely unique and unrepeatable.

R L Foote Design Studio was founded by Installation Artist, Designer, Chef and Food Designer Ryan L Foote, whose diverse background provides a unique source of technical know-how and creative innovation.
The Melbourne - Hong Kong based design studio is focused on delivering some of the most unique and contemporary ceramic flatware, interior design objects and event based designs, meticulously creating everything in their Hawthorn East studio workshop.
The studio has a particular interest in the designed food and beverage experience, thinking not only about the physical elements of the space, tableware, tables, seats but also the ephemeral experience that runs along side these objects. Imagining how the food and drink is served, eaten, played with, we conceptualise new food forms, textures, tastes, cultural influences and their effect on the dining experience.
