Our Copper Dinnerware Collection - Large Honeycomb Plates
You won’t believe how beautiful and luxurious these intricate plates are until you hold one in your hands. We know you’re going to love using them for entertaining, interior styling and picnics…
The inspiration behind our handcrafted copper dinnerware...
The weaving pattern that was used for this plate design was originally created for our Avery Baskets but we found it to be so durable, effective and stunning that we wanted to utilise it in a different way – and so the idea for our Honeycomb Plates was born!
Copper dinnerware - The story behind the art...
Whether we’re raising awareness for the amount of plastic pollution that our marine life are dealing with or talking about deforestation within the Amazon Rainforest, you can be sure that each item has a unique story to tell and our Honeycomb Plates are no different! Bees (the creators of honeycomb) face many of the same environmental challenges as other species such as habitat loss, degradation, pollution including pesticides and climate change. All of these threats have been created and been made worse by humans and so it’s up to us to reverse these detrimental effects and help to save our precious bees!
Wondering how our handcrafted copper dinnerware is created?
By keeping the wire in its original form, we can reduce our impact and ensure carbon neutral manufacturing (due to the whole process being handcrafted). Once the wire is ready to use, we use one of our unique and custom weaving techniques to begin creating the plate. We start from the middle of the design and work our way outwards in a spider like pattern and once the plate has reached the desired size, we use a beautiful plaiting and twisting technique to secure the strands in place and finish the design off. As with all of our products, upon completion, we undertake a quality control test to ensure that our Honeycomb Plates have reached our high quality and durability standards.

About the Collection - Copper Dinnerware
Each copper bowl and plate has been created with 100% recycled copper wire and it takes up to 30 hours for one piece to be completed. It's a long process from the stripping of the wire, the untwisting, the re-twisting and then the weaving into the beautiful finished product but we believe that quality homewares come from hard work, attention to detail and quality control.
