Ceramics by Marianne Van Ooij

If you’re the kind of person who spends more time figuring out what to wear to dinner than actually eating it, then these ceramics from designer Marianne Van Ooij might be right up your alley.

With their quirky add-ons like zippers, cuffs, and shirt collars, these plates and bowls are an eye-catching way to serve up the food at your next dinner party. They’re certainly guaranteed to get the conversation going. According to Van Ooij, getting dressed for dinner ‘is as much part of dining as enjoying the food itself’. So slip into that perfect outfit, and eat up!
