Detroit-based ceramics and design studio Corbé has designed The Fifty United Plates project, a collection of 50 handcrafted -decorative and functional- porcelain dishes.
Each dish depicts an American state and fitted together they form a three-dimensional map of U.S. that measures 7 x 4 feet.
Each State Plate is roughly 12 to 16 inches along its longest side, making it ideal for layered cakes, pies, casseroles, and appetizers. The plates could also be used as flowerpots for small plants.
‘The Map Set pays homage to the hardworking makers, farmers, and doers across the country; a tribute to where you are, what you’re making, doing, eating, loving and living.’
The plates can be purchased through Corbé’s online shop.
