Kitchenware brand Material has a history of launching bestselling kitchen staples — like its eco-friendly cutting board that sold out five times — and we can't imagine its latest collection will be any different. Today, Material expanded into the tabletop category with its first-ever ceramics line made in collaboration with Korean ceramics company Soil Baker.
The four-piece ceramics collection was crafted by potter, designer, and founder of Soil Baker, Hye-Rin Yang. It includes The Half Plate, The Full Plate, The Round Bowl, and The Open Bowl, all made from clay created with a custom blend of five types of natural Korean soil. Each piece is lightweight, sturdy, and dishwasher- and microwave-safe. You can get the collection in two colors, Dune and Grotto, and in sets of two or four starting at $60. And it's only the first of many expected tabletop launches from the brand this year.
"At Material, we always knew we wanted to expand to the table," Eunice Byun, founder of Material, said in a statement. "We wanted to create pieces that feel like the building blocks of a personal collection, not a set that comes from a box."
When you purchase a piece from the ceramics collection from March 24 to 31, 50% of the profits will be donated to the #HateIsAVirus Community Action Fund to raise money for local and national organizations that support the AAPI community.
