Just for fun, let’s take a look at the DISH Plate Series by the Patella Brothers. Each trompe l’oei design has a strange sort of narrative, and for that very reason I think most of us would vote to hang these plates on the wall as art rather than use them day in and day out. However, if you’d like your food to be presented alongside insects and other odd things, food-safe ink is used and each plate is dishwasher safe.
13 different silk-screened designs, sold separately.
Each plate is signed, stamped, numbered and dated.
Food-safe ink; dishwasher safe.

edition of 150, each design, $95.00
