the ‘eccentric plates’ tableware series by dutch designer daniel van dijck comprises of four handcrafted decorative design souvenirs and dinner plates, made of various materials like ceramics, copper and brass. the designs not only serve as a platform for our daily food consumption, but also aesthetically symbolize the diverse range of processes that occur in our body while we digest.

two of the variations are to be used, while the others are considered to be design objects. the ‘copper’ plate has been created through the use of a flexible casting mold. during the process, the sheer weight of the clay shaped the mold, in turn making every design unique. the ‘rough edge’ has been created by the process of using an existing plate for press molding. as design souvenirs, the ‘quid feci?’ series has been formed by working with small bubbles in the casting clay, which later melted away in the oven. the ‘wrinkled’ plate is created by combining flexible casting mold and casting brass.
