Drawn from Clay

I stumbled onto these amazing ceramics on the Dwell website, and have a great deal of respect for the designers who worked on this project.

"We wanted to make tableware so that the vegeta-
bles prepared for dinner could be served from vessels made
from the same soil the vegetables came out of" (Van Rijswijck)

The different soils that were taken to create these pieces resulted in different colors and textures in the final pieces.  All of this reminds me of a book I read a few years ago called, "Life Place" by Robert Thayer, which was a study in what it means to live, work, eat, and play in naturally defined areas.  It was a call to have a deeper connection to the natural world that surrounds the place you call home.  What a beautiful connection these designers have created to their life place.
