Porcelain flatware that’s almost too lovely to use
After working on one too many photo shoots devoid of pretty props, former food stylist Caroline Swift took matters into her own hands--literally.
For the past three years, she's been hand-crafting exquisite bowls, spoons, plates and eggcups for her eponymous porcelain company. Her collection is so beautiful, we'll think of any excuse to host a dinner party.
Swift's creations may appear too delicate for everyday use, but she assures us they're perfectly durable (and though she recommends hand-washing, her products are dishwasher-safe). We love her nearly translucent, yet surprisingly sturdy, bone-china bowls ($70 for three) and her dainty, tea and pudding spoons ($104 a pair), which are entirely too lovely for a drawer.
And, as if her flatware wasn't special enough, Swift recently debuted a stunning collection of hand-blown glass centerpieces that also make decorative wall hangings ($75 and up). These droplets are crafted in Italy, painted with gold and silver finishes, and come wrapped in a cute, white box with a bone-china tag.
Now our table setting is truly complete.
