Ceramic Appetizer Plate by Sthal in Pink
This Ceramic Appetizer Plate by Sthal in Pink is a bohemian-inspired everyday ceramics that brightens up any day of the week. The Arabesque design is characterized by interlacing foliage, such as leaves and vines.
The name Sthål originates from the initials of Susanna Theander and Helena Åkesson-Liedberg. As designers and stylists with a passion for food and good company, they were always searching for dishes and bowls with colours, shapes and patterns that stood out from the ordinary. Tableware that would do the food visual justice, and give the party the right atmosphere. Since working with ceramics was a hobby for both of them, they decided to create themselves exactly what they were looking for.
They weren’t actually the only ones that wanted to search for something new. So did Pia Hallqvist, an amazing designer with solid background in glass and porcelain production, she helped them take the first steps towards producing their own collection. The result is bohemian everyday ceramics that brightens up any day of the week. An untraditional full service – if that’s what you want – where every piece works just as well as a solitary accent on the table.
They have named the collection Arabesque and presented it at Sweden’s largest interior design fair, Formex, in January 2012, where it received a very warm welcome. Arabesque is a French expression, meaning “something Arabic”. It also denotes an artistic expression characterized by interlacing foliage, such as leaves and vines. All pieces are manufactured in white stoneware clay, which is fired in very high temperatures, in order to make it hardwearing and waterproof. The beautiful glazes are carefully selected to make the food look appetising. Thanks to the craft itself and the living character of both the clay and the glaze, every single item has a unique appearance. No piece is identical to another, but the family resemblance is clear. Finally, they put their STHÅL signature on the backside – a guarantee for lots and lots of parties to come.
