These Anthropologie exotic plates are skillfully hand-crafted by South African artist Ruan Hoffmann. From bold prints to bright colors, these exquisite pottery pieces are both functional and decorative. From elaborate dishware to eccentric wall decor, the multi-functional art pieces make a statement within any home.

Hoffman uses three-dimensional surfaces of plated pottery to create bold masterpieces with an ethnic art inspiration in mind. These plates and bowls act as sculptural canvases that showcase the artist's eclectic signature style.

From organic, mythical and abstract expressionism, Ruan Hoffman's earthenware, paper clay and porcelain slip plates have a one of a kind aesthetic, that is both artful and intricate. These vibrant pieces are raw, ornate and authentic, exuding a tremendous amount of personality and character.
