A Plate a Day

I found this wonderful blog – A Plate a Day.

Just a massive amount of variety to the simple plate. The plate is something we use daily and most of us don’t ever give it a second thought.  As humans we need, in order of importance –

1) Air
2) Water
3) Food

The vessels that we use to drink with and to eat with are very meaningful when you think about it. It’s just part of the routine, the ritual of staying alive and thriving. They are so ubiquitous that they are virtually ignored beyond the initial reactions of “Oh these plates are cool lets get this set!” or the oh so often “I am really tired of washing dishes!”.

Give your dishes a second look next time you sit down for a nice meal. Do they just do their job or do they give you something beyond that? A connection with the maker perhaps? A symbiosis with your food or drink? A reminder of someone or some time in your life? Food for thought I guess. Have a great day!
