Decorated oval-shaped dish

Large oval dishes allow for a variety of food combinations, including oriental dishes such as curry, fried rice and sushi, and western dishes such as salad and meat or fish and rice.

For those who are creative in the kitchen

This is for people who like to cook and want to create different presentations at the table. Different types of food can be easily mixed together on the same plate.

It is also a great way to present dishes to be shared, such as salads, sushi or chicken wings. There are as many combinations as you can imagine.

The high rim of the plate can also be used for dishes with sauces and creams.

For busy people

Even if you don't have a lot of time to eat and wash up, this plate allows you to put a large amount of food on the table and only need one plate to wash up.
People who usually eat frozen food can simply put their lunches and dinners on the plate after cooking them in the microwave to make them look good and make cooking quick and easy.

The dish is sturdy and easy to store.

This piece is made of Shigaraki clay, which is known for its high resistance, so it can withstand bumps and falls.

If there is not enough space in the kitchen, smaller dishes can be stored on top of this piece.

Alternatively, if you buy several oval plates, they can be stacked exactly on top of each other as they are made from the same mould, even though the decoration is unique to each plate.

Traditional Catalan inspiration

The design is inspired by the frieze, which was used to decorate plates and other everyday items in Catalonia, Lartesanna's home region. They were usually displayed around the edges of plates and used to mark dishes.

This time, Lartesanna wanted to play with tradition and innovation by adopting a design similar to the plates used in Japan to serve large quantities of food.

Without losing the essence of traditional design, the potter traced a linear, abstract pattern in the middle of each piece with a brush. For visual balance, they left the edges undecorated. The design was not over- or under-designed, allowing the dishes to take centre stage.

The dishes are available in different colours and clay types. Each has its own unique design, but can easily be combined.
