This minimalist ceramic dinnerware collection features items that are handcrafted with an efficient and innovative design.

Los Angeles-based designer and ceramicist Ben Medansky collaborated with international designer Kelly Wearstler and retailer Bergdorf Goodman to create a collection of items that can be featured all around the house. Predominantly, a dinnerware collection with a few other wares as well -- the 'Pyrite' collection features elegant and minimalistic design.

The intention of this minimalist ceramic dinnerware collection is for each handcrafted piece to be created for practical design while using "eternal materials" to bring joy to simple, every day rituals. The ceramicist views his process as creating something timeless that can be a testament of art for future generations -- as he describes, the "clay becomes [a] cup, [the] cup becomes [a] sculpture and both become the history of the future."
