jean jullien has illustrated each plate in the set of 6 with its own unique shape, color and personality. facial expressions range from cheerful and chipper, to sleepy and sad, embodying the artist’s distinct artistic style. colors include off-white, coral, blue, pastel mint, pink, and light yellow shades. organically shaped surfaces range from perfect circles to oblong ovals, giving each figure an unusual and unique sensibility. produced by case studyo, ‘face plates’ turn every dinner into a party, with a serving statement for every type of guest, food or mood.
