Dutch designer Daniel van Dijck launched a line of tableware in a series called Eccentric Plates, consisting of four handcrafted decorative and dinner plate designs. Each unique design is made from various materials like ceramic, copper, and brass.
The plates are not only a part of our daily eating ritual, they also represent the process that go on in our body while we’re eating. We all know how sometimes that’s more extreme than others, which means some of the plates are more eccentric than others, hence their name.
The Copper Plates were created by the process of using a flexible casting mold. During the casting the weight of the clay shaped the mold, which makes every plate unique.

The Quid Feci? Plates were created by the process of using small bubbles in the casting clay, which later melted away in the oven.

The plates were launched at Designboom Mart during Tokyo Designers Week 2014.
