Daniel Van Dijck's 'Eccentric Plates' Collection Marries Form with Function

Designer Daniel Van Dijck specializes in handcrafted dishware and his 'Eccentric Plates' collection aims to transform dining experiences into a more artful affair. Drawing inspiration from relief art, each of Daniel Van Dijck's objects is textured, pierced, or layered -- creating a sculptural effect that is striking without making each piece less functional.

Some of the Eccentric Plates collection's most notable dishes include white plates with pierced sides -- mimicking eroded stones and shells that have been submerged in water -- along with a seafoam green design that features a rippled, and wrinkle-like texture.

Marrying form with function, these dishware accessories make dining experiences more artful, and memorable. Each piece is carefully handcrafted by Dijck, meaning no two are exactly alike in appearance.
