In an era where Bisphenol A is as common a seasoning as pepper, you aren't just what you eat, but what you eat upon. For this reason, we all know to avoid plates that leach bad stuff into our bodies; but, there are plates that go a step further by feeding good stuff to our souls. With modern, folksy edge, Rob Ryan's four seasons plates accomplish the second.
A brilliant papercut artist working out of London, Ryan has translated his art to everything from wallpaper to rugs. His most recent collaboration with Wild & Wolf graces our table with his self-professed sentimental art. Consider his winter plate, which reads, “We had nothing. We had not much. We had enough. We Had Everything.” With Ryan, even if you're eating raw food, your table will be warm.
