The Brand Behind That Coveted Kitchenware That Always Sells Out Just Launched Tableware
Its first-ever collection of tableware launched today, and it features four ceramic styles — The Full Plate, The Half Plate, The Open Bowl, and The Round Bowl — in light and dark shades. The pieces are crafted from a rare clay drawn from a custom blend of five types of natural Korean soil, which gives them a gently grainy look that subtly changes in different lighting. Their unique shapes were in collaboration with Soil Baker, a Seoul-based ceramicist.
Human hands are involved in every step of Material's tableware line. Each plate and bowl is hand-thrown on the potter's wheel, fired using age-old craftsmanship techniques from Yeoju, South Korea, and hand-finished for a unique surface that's one of a kind.
"We wanted to create pieces that feel like the building blocks of a personal collection, not a set that comes from a box," Material co-founder Eunice Byun said in a press release. "They're simple enough to let the food stand out, but detailed enough to warrant a second look."
Every time Material launches a new product, it instantly becomes a hit. When the brand released its best-selling cutting board, it sold out in just three days — and then five more times within the year. So we expect Material's new tableware will go just as quickly. Until March 31, when you purchase anything from the ceramics collection, Material will donate 50 percent of the profits to #HateIsaVirus Community Action Fund.
