Mezze Platter Set

Arjan Van Dal
Mezze Platter Set by Arjan van Dal, consisting of a mezze plate in pale samphire, accompanied by four smaller mezze dishes in kohl black, fahlman yellow, pale grey and brown.

This minimalist and vibrant mezze set was created to encourage a playful interaction between food and colour; drawing upon Middle Eastern dining traditions and how dishes can be perceived differently when presented on different coloured backgrounds. The rims of the dishes have been left extra thick to frame the food in varying hues.
Material: Porcelain
Dimensions: Height: 3.5cm, Width: 28cm (mezze plate)
Care Instructions: Wipe with a damp, soft cloth.


The various colour pigments are worked manually into the porcelain form to create a solid colour. Once fired, the pieces are glazed with a transparent glaze on the inside while the outside is polished with a diamond sanding pad to create a very smooth surface.
