Veronique Maire's Dinner Dishes Integrate Mountains, Volcanoes and Lakes

These unusual dinner dishes by Véronique Maire play with the way foods are presented and enjoyed. Although the trays take a mostly rectangular shape like a flat tray, the 'Landscape Tableware' series includes unexpected inclines and recesses that augment the meals on them.

The ceramic dishes are sculpted to include small mountains, volcanoes and lake shapes that interrupt eating surfaces that are totally flat. The three dishes in the series are appropriately named 'La Chaine de Montagne,' 'Le Volcan' and 'Le Lac' to reflect the integration of these natural elements into the dinnerware.

The white dish prototypes are quite minimal in their designs, but each of the trays is still able to tell quite a different story from the others in the Landscape Tableware series.
