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.
