The Half Plate

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 22 reviews

The 8” Half Plate is our go-to platito for breakfast, small bites, sandwiches, and the like. Our ceramics are crafted from natural Korean soils and hand-finished, and as such, each piece is one-of-a-kind and imperfect, and their colors, deep and unique. Yet, despite ceramics’ delicate reputation, ours are lightweight but still sturdy enough for everyday use, as well as dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

We're setting the table.

Our foray into Tabletop is one that’s meant to elevate small, everyday moments, and to make people comfortable at the table, so they can pull up a seat and stay a while.

Dining together is an intimate tradition, and we wanted our first dining offering to feel personal. Thus, we partnered with Hye Rin Yang of Soil Baker, a South Korean female ceramicist who blends expert culinary and design expertise into timeless, long-lasting pieces.

Human hands are involved in every step of the making. The designs for these pieces were hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel and fired using traditional techniques, drawing upon the age-old craftsmanship of Yeoju, South Korea, where artisans have been producing ceramics since 918 AD. Each piece is hand-finished, and as such, one-of-a-kind and imperfect.

The clay for our collection is drawn from numerous soils (Dune, three, and Grotto, five) for a clay blend that was invented by Soil Baker craftsmen, exclusively for us. The result is a versatile color depth that changes in various light - simple enough to let your food stand out, yet detailed enough to warrant a second look.

Despite ceramics’ delicate reputation, ours are lightweight yet sturdy enough for everyday use, as well as dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

Perfect for just about everything

Love the quality, weight and natural look of my bowls that I use for pasta, the teriyaki rice bowls, salad and just about anything else. I probably use them more than my dinner plates from Material.

the best bowl

The Round Bowl and its companion pieces are beyond compare. Beautifully crafted. Look, sound, and feel are minimal in that essential sort of way, yet so sophisticated. The Round Bowl is perfect for soup, oats, or perhaps a serving of cobbler.

Well Done

Somewhat smaller than I thought, but really a good size. Good ‘material’, too.

Lovely plates

I got the whole dish set (including bowls) from Material and while they took awhile to get to me, they’re great. I use them all the time and they elevate all my meals. Just as an FYI, the inside of the bowls and plates have a light ceramic sheen (as seen in the photos) while the outside/underside is a smooth matte.
