Is that tin foil?

Gourmet
If you saw our previous feature on Is that plastic? we showed you some ceramics that looked like tupperware. This time we’ve found some that look like tin foil containers – but are actually made out of porcelain, meaning you can wash your pie dishes rather than throwing them away.

Designed by US sculptor Lorena Barrezueta the Gourmet Collection comes with either a clear glaze with guilded rim, or in a coloured over glaze.

My favourites are the brightly coloured ones which would enhance any table setting. Lorena describes them as a ‘subtle commentary on disposible culture’ but even if you don’t aspire to green living you can still enjoy the quirkiness of the pieces.

They are available directly from Lorena and contact details and more information can be found on her website.
